For more information about Lasell House, please call Marie-Francoise Maitre, (617) 663-7042.

At Lasell House, we’re proud to have received the highest ranking from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) – a five-star rating! We’re a 38-bed skilled nursing facility, located in Newton, Massachusetts, on the campus of Lasell Village. We serve residents of Lasell Village, as well as people throughout the Greater Boston area.

The CMS rating system (which ranges from 1-star to 5-star) was designed to help patients and families compare nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities in their area.

Criteria for the Medicare rating system for facilities includes:

  • staffing levels (nurses and registered nurses), as well as turnover of staff
  • health inspections (based on state health inspections)
  • quality inspections (based on 15 different quality inspection measures, for both long stays and short stays)

For the health inspection scoring, the CMS bases its ratings on the performance of nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities within a state. Only the top 10% of facilities within each state receive the 5-star rating for health inspections.

At Lasell House, our primary nursing care and rehab services include:

  • orthopedic rehab
  • cardiac rehab
  • wound care management
  • infectious disease management
  • hospice care / End of Life care
