Leesburg, VA – (March 8, 2012) — Inova Loudoun Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (ILNRC) has just achieved the designation of 5–Star Rating from CMS, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Five-Star Quality Rating System was created to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and help identify areas about which they may want to ask questions. Three areas comprise the overall rating: Health Inspections, Quality Measures, and Staffing. ILNRC is one of only seven Nursing Homes in Northern Virginia have the 5-Star Rating.

“The 5-Star designation is an achievement. This says to our customers that we have reached a level of quality that exceeds standard, and that we are among the top-rated Nursing Homes in our state,” stated Elizabeth Kaeser, RN, MSN, LNHA, Administrator, ILNRC.

In addition to the 5-Star Rating, ILNRC is nationally recognized by the American Health Care Association. The experienced staff at this 100-bed not-for-profit skilled nursing facility has been providing expert care to Northern Virginia and Loudoun County families for 30 years.
