Center Celebrates 30 Years & Five-Star Rating

Richland Bean-Blossom Health Care Center is celebrating the month of March in a big way. On March 6, the center recognized 30 years of delivering quality post-acute care and short-term rehabilitation therapy to Ellettsville and Bloomington area residents. Additionally, the facility received Five-Star status from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) - the highest rating possible for a skilled nursing center.
 
"In 1988, our founders knew that providing health services to this area was of utmost importance and began showcasing the hometown care that Richland Bean-Blossom Health Care Center is now known for by many. We look forward to continuing to provide compassionate state-of-the-art nursing care for another 30 years," said Steve Kassen, executive director of Richland Bean-Blossom Health Care Center.
 
"As we realize the impact our care has made over the years, five-star status couldn't have come at a better time. It truly is a reflection of the superb clinical care our team members give each day, and that is a result of taking care of residents as if they were our family members. While we are nestled only minutes away from Bloomington, we deliver care to rival what can be found in much larger cities. As a local care provider, we get to know our residents to exceed their expectations and help meet their medical goals," continued Kassen. "Our focus is in providing a sense of community to those who have a long-term or short-term stay at our center. We are proud that residents - and their families - point out that they choose Richland Bean-Blossom Health Care Center because they feel a sense of connection and warmth from our team."
 
The CMS Five-Star Quality Rating allows residents and their families an easy way to assess nursing home quality and to provide the necessary information to find the right center for their needs. Richland Bean-Blossom Health Care Center strives to provide superior clinical outcomes and quality care with an approach that is patient-centered, disciplined and transparent. The CMS Five-Star Quality Ratings are derived from health inspections, staffing, and quality measures to provide an overall rating for the facility.
 
Richland Bean-Blossom Health Care Center offers long-term and short-term skilled nursing care, inpatient therapy services, and a specialty orthopedic recovery program. The public is encouraged to visit the center for a tour.
