Trinity receives national recognition

STEUBENVILLE — Trinity Health System’s home health and skilled care services have received national accolades.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services rated the skilled care unit as a 5-Star facility, the highest rating that can be received.

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare skilled nursing facilities more easily and to help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions. This rating considers differences in the levels of residents’ care needs in each skilled care facility. A 5-Star rating indicates that a facility is meeting or exceeding all requirements for quality care.

This rating also put the skilled care unit on the list of the top nursing homes in Ohio as determined by US News & World Report.

Trinity also has received the Strategic Healthcare Programs Best Superior Performer award for achieving an overall score that ranked in the top 20 percent in the SHP national Home Health Care Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems benchmark and scoring above the SHP national average for each HHCAHPS quality measure during 2018.

The numbers show that patients being served by our caregivers have given positive feedback regarding the care they have received in their homes, Trinity officials explained.

“Receiving these accolades only confirms our dedication to serving the needs of the Ohio Valley,” stated Matt Grimshaw, Trinity’s CEO. “Our sub-acute services are rated the highest in the region against national benchmarks. We are very proud of our team members who deliver this quality care on a daily basis.”
