Porter McGrath Health Center at Florida Presbyterian Homes has received the highest overall rating of five stars in U.S. News & World Report’s seventh annual Best Nursing Homes, available exclusively at http://www.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes.
Created by the publisher of Best Hospitals and Best Children’s Hospitals, the Best Nursing Homes 2015 ratings highlight the top nursing homes in each city and state, out of nearly 16,000 facilities nationwide. The goal is to help users find a home with a strong track record of quality care.
To create Best Nursing Homes 2015, U.S. News drew on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Homes” designation to facilities that recently earned the agency’s highest overall rating of five stars.
“Our staff is focused on delivering person-centered care and improving the health outcomes of our residents,” said Maria Rivera, Administrator. “Our goal is to foster an environment dedicated to dignity and respect. It is an honor to be part of a workforce that is driven to such excellence.”
Best Nursing Homes 2015 provides data and information on care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for nearly every nursing home facility in the U.S. The articles and ratings are exclusive to the website and aren’t scheduled to appear in print.
“Finding the right place for an elderly loved one is a challenge millions of Americans face each year,” says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News. “We hope our Best Nursing Homes ratings, advice and tools help them navigate this important decision.”
