Staff writer

St. Luke Living Center ranked well in the latest ratings listed on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website, Nursing Home Compare.

Nursing homes are given ratings of one to five stars for overall quality, health inspections, staffing, and quality measures.

St. Luke Living Center got five-star ratings for overall quality, staffing, and quality measures, and a three-star rating for health inspections.

Five-star ratings are considered “much above average quality.” Four-star ratings are considered “above average,” three-star ratings “average,” two-star ratings “below average,” and one-star ratings “much below average.”

“I am proud of the co-workers at the Living Center,” St. Luke Living Center director Janet Herzet said. “The staff cares deeply for our residents and provides quality care to meet the needs of each resident.”

Roger Schroeder, marketing director for St. Luke Living Center, said he is proud the Living Center received the only overall five-star nursing home rating in a 25-mile radius of Marion.
