St. Luke recognized as one of best
A recent study by U.S. News & World Report named St. Luke Living Center as one of the top nursing homes in the country.
“This is an incredible honor,” said St. Luke Living Center Director Janet Herzet. “It is a direct reflection of the commitment by our entire staff to provide quality care to each resident, every single day.”
For the study, U.S. News collected data and ratings about nearly every nursing facility in the United States, and built from them a searchable database designed to highlight the highest-rated homes likely to meet each user’s needs.
The data behind the Best Nursing Homes study came from Nursing Home Compare, a website run by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. CMS sets and enforces standards for nursing homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid, as most are. The agency also collects information from states and individual homes and assigns each home a rating of one to five stars in each of three categories: state-conducted health inspections, nursing and physical therapy staffing, and quality of medical care.
In January, St. Luke Living Center was one of 3,036 nursing homes to earn an overall five-star rating from the federal government.
