Lake Ridge and Park View Care Centers both awarded 5 stars, ranked 2nd and 5th in the state

Cassia Senior Health & Living facilities, Lake Ridge and Park View Care Centers have an overall five-star rating from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), according to the latest reports published by the federal agency. Only the top 10 percent of skilled nursing facilities in the state receive this prestigious honor. In addition, The Minnesota Department of Human Services currently ranks Lake Ridge 2nd and Park View 5th in the state out of 350 nursing homes in the quality of care for their long stay resident population.

“The 5-star rating is difficult to attain, and much harder to retain,” said Jason Nelson, Campus Administrator, Lake Ridge Senior Health & Living. “We are proud of the hard work that our employees and leadership provide to the care of those entrusted to us, and are honored to continue to be designated as a 5-star facility. It is wonderful that two facilities nearly across the street from one another have been able to attain this level of quality and maintain that over time.”

Mathew Bedard, Park View Campus Administrator said, “It is an honor to receive another 5 Star rating in the CMS Nursing Home Compare. For there to be two 5 Star Nursing Homes in the same community is quite rare nationally. I want to commend our staff that have achieved this success and for the support our sites have received from our residents, families and the community of Buffalo and the surrounding area. These positive outcomes are a direct re-sult of the caliber of the people in our community, a work ethic that only knows how to get a job done, and a culture that makes taking care of your neighbors a priority. Park View and Lake Ridge are reflection of those deeply rooted values and we could not be more proud to be part of Buffalo.”
