PLAINFIELD, NJ – JFK Hartwyck at Cedar Brook, a Plainfield-based subacute/long term care facility and one of a few facilities throughout the nation providing care to those affected by Huntington’s disease, was recently awarded a ‘Five-Star’ rating by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The highest recognition awarded by CMS, the ‘Five-Star’ rating is based on state and national data in the categories of ‘overall quality,’ ‘health inspection,’ ‘quality measures,’ ‘staffing,’ and ‘RN staffing.’

“The ‘Five-Star’ rating is difficult to achieve and I am so proud of our hardworking, dedicated, passionate team members who provide excellent care every day to our residents to maintain the highest quality of care,” said Aimee Allen, administrator at JFK Hartwyck at Cedar Brook.
