Washington, D.C., March 5, 2015 – The Lutheran Home, in Wauwatosa, WI 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-
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.
“We are excited to once again to be recognized as one of the best nursing homes not only in the area, but in the country,” stated Scott McFadden, President & CEO of Lutheran Home & Harwood Place.
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.”
