KING, Wis. (WBAY) – The Wisconsin Veterans Home in King received a five-star rating in all four of its facilities.

The rating comes through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which completed a survey this month.

This marks the first time the home received that high rating.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs, only 15 percent of homes across the country receive a 5-star rating.

This comes at a time when a number of veterans have complained about conditions and care at the facility and many legislators have called for a review of the nursing home.
