Homes receive an overall rating of one to five stars from the government based on the number of stars earned in three other categories: health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care.

Robertson, CEO for Bon Secours Virginia Extended Care. “I am proud of the Bon Secours Maryview Nursing Care Center for answering their call to serve our residents who are in need of good help.”
