Prairieview at Garlands Earns 20 out of 20-Star Rating

Prairieview at The Garlands achieved a perfect overall 5-star rating for the third year in a row from the federal government’s Center for Medicare Services (CMS) for quality. What’s more, Prairieview earned the perfect 5-star rating in all of four categories: overall, health-inspection results, adequacy of nursing staff and quality of medical care—a total of 20 out of 20 stars.  Only 1.5 percent of the 766 communities surveyed throughout Illinois earned this perfect score.

Prairieview at The Garlands offers around-the-clock assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing services within the context of the Garlands of Barrington, a premier continuing care retirement community located at 1000 Garlands Lane, Barrington, IL. Access to the highly rated skilled nursing at Prairieview for short-term rehab or long-term skilled nursing care is limited (due to state licensing agreements) to, and an added benefit for, residents who currently live within The Garlands retirement community as independent living or assisted living members.

“This is a remarkable accomplishment and a true testimony to the quality and value that our skilled nursing program offers our members in the event they should ever need these services,” said Garlands Executive Director David Loop.

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help older adults, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily. This information gives consumers a “snap shot” of the care individual providers offer. Visit to see the ratings.
