United Zion Retirement Community Achieves 5-Star Rating


Lititz, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/16/2016 -- United Zion Retirement Community, located at 722 Furnace Hills Pike, Lititz, PA, recently achieved a five-star overall rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The CMS rating is based on three components: health inspections, staffing, and quality measures. Each component is measured individually, and they are combined for an overall rating.

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, "the Five-Star Quality Rating System [is] to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily....Nursing homes with 5 stars are considered to have much above average quality."

United Zion Retirement Community began through the efforts of Barbara & Henry Firestone, United Zion Church members, who welcomed people into their home in the early 1900s, caring for their social and health needs. That tradition continues with a faith-inspired mission to provide superior quality services to seniors, based on Christian principles, in a loving and caring community that promotes independence, wellness, and human dignity.
