Following the addition of the Short-Stay Rehabilitation last year, U.S. News and World Reports is introducing the new rating focused on long-term care. This new rating aims to provide prospective residents who need help with daily activities, and their families, with analysis and information regarding the quality of care provided by nursing homes. The rating includes data on staffing, success in preventing ER visits and pneumonia vaccination rates, among other metrics.

All measures in both ratings were developed from data from the CMS as of August 2019. Click here for more information regarding the methodology of the ratings.

Skilled nursing communities earned the Best Nursing Homes recognition by being rated High Performing in either the Short-Stay Rehabilitation or  Long-Term care.

“This recognition highlights the commitment we have at Brookdale,” said Charlie Anderson, vice president of skilled healthcare operations for Brookdale. “I’m not at all surprised to see these communities excel, as I know our teams of associates are completely devoted to providing the very best care possible at these locations.”
