Mercyhealth Care Center is proud to have been named among the “Best Nursing Homes” in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, now in its 13th year, help prospective residents and their families in making informed decisions in consultation with their medical professionals about where to receive short-term or long-term nursing home care. Only 16 percent of U.S skilled-nursing facilities earned the “Best Nursing Home” designation this year.
“On behalf of all of my colleagues, we are extremely honored to receive this recognition from U.S. News & World Report,” said Kathy Kus, Director of Skilled Nursing Centers. “It is a true testament to our shared commitment to provide the highest quality of care for our residents.”
For 2022-2023, U.S. News rated over 15,000 nursing homes across the country on quality of care, safety, infection rates, staffing and health inspections.
“I applaud the team at Mercyhealth for their commitment and compassion to delivering the best of care for their residents,” said Matt Pickering, executive director of HCCI. “It is an honor, especially given the many challenges facing skilled nursing facilities.”
U.S. News awards the “Best Nursing Home” designation only to organizations that meet U.S. News’ assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures. Categories of consideration include nurse staffing, physical therapist staffing, consistent nurse staffing, prevention of falls, patients able to return home, and patient-centered rehabilitation therapy.
For 13 consecutive years, the U.S. News “Best Nursing Homes” ratings offer comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections and staffing for the nation’s 15,000-plus skilled nursing facilities.
The Best Nursing Homes ratings reflect U.S. News’ exclusive analysis of publicly available data using a methodology defined by U.S. News that evaluates factors that impact patient care, safety and outcomes to provide guidance for residents, families and caregivers when they are researching the quality of skilled nursing facilities.
