Heritage Care Center in Fairbury, NE is Changing the View of Long Term Care
Heritage Care Center is a 5 out 5 Star Skilled Nursing Facility.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare skilled nursing centers more easily and to help identify areas they may want to ask questions about. The 5-star quality rating system isn’t a substitute for visiting the skilled nursing centers. Use the 5-star ratings together with other sources of information.
