Fort Hudson Nursing Center Achieves 5 Star Quality Ranking

 

 EXCITING NEWS!! Fort Hudson Nursing Center has achieved the highest possible ranking for quality by CMS, the Federal Agency which oversees nursing facilities. Our score is based on several quality measures including avoiding hospitalizations; lower infection rates, pain control management, and others.  We are proud to say that we are the only skilled nursing facility in Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties with a five star quality rating.
The pride we have in this distinction is shared by every member of our team, across every department. Quality resident care is a direct result of quality people providing the care; and we are exceptionally proud of our employees who bring their passion and dedication to their work – every day.
Our appreciation goes to every Fort Hudson employee; as well as to our residents and their families for selecting Fort Hudson.

And…if you hear us celebrating our achievement, don’t be alarmed. We’re elated with this recognition, and want you to know about it!

Sincerely, Amanda Ann Waite Administrator

CONGRATULATIONS To Fort Hudson CHHA Program for Excellent Survey

A shout-out to Fort Hudson’s CHHA for getting HIGH MARKS from their DOH survey!

The tri-annual DOH survey of the Certified Home Health Program was conducted over the past week. It wrapped up with what DOH described as “an EXCELLENT survey!”

Congratulations to the entire team for the tremendous growth and progress achieved since our opening in 2014! Noted were a few policy adjustments – however, the most IMPORTANT part of the program is what we do in the home…and that scored PERFECT in everyway!

Well done and THANK YOU to our amazing CHHA team!
