The Living Center at St. John’s Medical Center is one of the best, according to U.S. News and World Report.
For the second year in a row, the publication designated the facility a “Best Nursing Home,” an honor conferred to just 3% of the 15,000 senior living centers in the United States.
U.S. News and World Report rates nursing homes in two categories: short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. St. John’s Living Center achieved the top honor in both categories.
“We have a synergy that pushes us to redefine what life in a nursing home looks and feels like,” Malenda Hoelscher, the center’s executive director, said in a press release. “This recent award is a testament that we are headed in the right direction.”
The ranking system takes into account several factors, including “staffing, outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care,” according to the publication’s methodology.
Using scientific review and speaking with industry experts, it also looked at data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
