Long-Term Care Facility Birmingham Green Receives Top Rating
August 2, 2012
The long-term care facility Birmingham Green has been awarded a Five-Star Quality of Care rating by the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This is the highest quality award given by CMS, and recognizes the facility’s excellence in health inspections, staffing and quality measures. Employees of Birmingham Green’s assisted living facilities, Willow Oaks and The District Home, also were recognized for excellent care as documented by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
“I am pleased to see the facility and staff recognized for its services. Birmingham Green has always been an important part of Fairfax County’s efforts to provide excellent, personal care for its residents,” said Paula Sampson, director of the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development. “The campus provides a unique array of services, and serves as a model example of neighboring jurisdictions working together to help those most in need.”
Birmingham Green, located in Manassas, is a jointly operated, regional long-term care facility serving the communities of Northern Virginia. In continuous operation since 1926, the campus serves low-income residents in need referred by the human services agencies of Fairfax County, along with the counties of Fauquier, Prince William, Loudoun and the City of Alexandria.
Sampson sits on the Governing Board of Birmingham Green as Fairfax County’s representative, and also serves as vice chairman for the board.
