Riverton Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (April 18, 2024) Riverton Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Allentown has earned a Five-Star Overall rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Located at 803 N. Wahneta Street, the skilled nursing facility offers post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.  

As part of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, CMS is responsible for quality standards in long-term care facilities through its survey and certification process; it gives each nursing home a rating of between one and five stars.

Our congratulations to the entire team on this well-deserved recognition.” 

Riverton’s reputation for quality care and services is well established. In addition to its recent CMS Five-Star Overall rating, the Lehigh County facility has earned the prestigious Nursing Care Center Accreditation from The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare.
