White Oak Management Inc. of Spartanburg hosted a luncheon, catered by Hare and Hound of Landrum, for the staff of White Oak of Tryon to celebrate their Deficiency Free evaluation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which was conducted in September.

The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation conducted a routine survey at White Oak of Tryon to evaluate the nursing facility’s compliance with federal quality standards and found them to be in substantial compliance in all areas that included delivery of care, resident outcomes and facility conditions. The average percentage of deficiency-free facilities in the state of North Carolina is around 6 percent out of 407 facilities annually.
