Kenilworth Care & Rehab Center gets top rating from federal regulators.
Sebring, Fla. (August 21, 2012): Kenilworth Care & Rehabilitation Center is proud to announce that it has received a five-star quality rating, the highest overall score, from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Kenilworth is a 104-bed nursing community located at 3011 Kenilworth Blvd. in Sebring. It is one of 72 nursing facilities operated by Louisville, Kentucky-based Signature HealthCARE LLC.
Under the five-star rating system, nursing homes are assessed in three main categories: health inspections, quality measures, and staffing. The overall rating combines scores received in each of the three categories.The system is intended to help consumers, families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and identify areas about which they would like to learn more. The building received especially high marks based in the quality measures. The quality measures category is an important indicator that we are glad we have done well in. This category assesses how well we are taking care of our residents.
Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.
China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners! The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.

This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.
Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.
Just in time for the holiday cooking season, Signature HealthCARE (SHC) has released a cookbook featuring recipes – some generations old – from residents and staff members in its nursing homes.
Titled ‘Cooking with Love,’ the book features a little bit of everything, from appetizers, soups and salads to sides, all-American dishes, ethnic fare, desserts and more. The project began earlier this year in Signature’s Urban Division, with staff members at SHC centers soliciting recipes from residents and contributing their own.
