One of the care centers in Cedar Rapids has been recognized nationally.
In a resounding testament to their unwavering dedication to superior healthcare standards, West Ridge Care Center has been honored with the distinguished 2023 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award.

Care facilities must also demonstrate an ongoing commitment to learning and developing effective approaches that substantially contribute to improved performance and healthcare outcomes for their residents.
