The Bridge at Bay St. Joe Nursing and Rehabilitation center announced that it received a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal Agency tasked with oversight of nursing home quality.

Under the five-star rating system, nursing homes are assessed in three main categories that include health inspections, quality measures, and staffing. The overall rating combines scores received in each of the categories. The system is intended to help consumers, families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and identify which will best suit their needs. “I couldn’t be more proud of our staff at The Bridge,” said Reid. “It is because of their daily commitment, diligence, hard work, and compassion that we received the five-star rating which, most importantly, is a reflection of the care we are providing and that our residents and patients so deserve.”
