Associates in front of facility

Cañon Lodge Care Center in Cañon City, Colorado, recently earned a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.


The CMS ratings system is designed to assist the public in choosing care for their loved ones. It calculates ratings based on results of health inspections, staffing and quality measures (including pain management, pressure ulcers, weight loss and falls).


“We are very excited and proud to have achieved this five-star rating and to be the only facility in Cañon City that has such a rating,” said Amel Topic, executive director. “Ultimately, it is a reflection of the hard work and quality of care that our staff puts in day after day at our facility, while striving to achieve Life Care’s mission and values.”


The rating officially posted on the CMS website on July 26, 2017.
