The Asbury Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at Asbury Heights, a senior living community and care facility in Mt. Lebanon, has been awarded a 5-star overall rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The quality standards assessed for the overall rating are health inspection, staffing and quality measures.

“We are honored to be so highly rated by CMS,” says John Zanardelli, President and chief executive officer, United Methodist Services for the Aging. “At Asbury Heights, we work hard to meet and exceed the needs of our residents with top quality health care and resources.”

The overall rating from CMS incorporates the results of a health inspection of the nursing home, staffing hours for registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, licensed vocational nurses, and certified nursing assistants, and resident assessment data that shows how well the nursing home cares for residents’ needs. In each category, Asbury scored above average and received 5 out of 5 possible stars for its overall rating.
