Once again, Good Shepherd Home – Bethlehem and Good Shepherd Home – Raker Center have both received 5-star overall ratings for the Care Compare Five-Star Ratings of Nursing Homes report by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Unlike traditional nursing homes, Good Shepherd’s long-term care facilities, which total 159 beds, are home to individuals living with severe disabilities who require 24/7 nursing care. Residents of the Good Shepherd Home – Raker Center in Allentown and Good Shepherd Home – Bethlehem have diagnoses such as multiple sclerosis, brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury and muscular dystrophy.

The CMS Care Compare Five-Star Ratings of Nursing Homes allows consumers to compare nursing homes on topics they consider most important, and provides a snapshot of the quality of each nursing home.

The rating, which is as of July 27, 2022, combines results and data from three important sources, including health inspections, staffing and quality of resident care measures. A star rating is calculated for each of these three sources, along with an overall rating.

Congratulations to the teams at Good Shepherd Home – Raker Center and Good Shepherd Home – Bethlehem.
