Spaulding West Roxbury Recognized by U.S. News & World Report in 2012 Best Nursing Home
February 08, 2012
Washington D.C. – Spaulding Therapy and Nursing Center West Roxbury has received a high ranking of five stars overall in U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Nursing Homes, released this week. U.S. News’s Best Nursing Homes recognizes top-rated homes in all 50 states and offers important guidance to families and healthcare providers caring for people in need of a nursing home.
“More than 3 million Americans will spend part of 2012 in a nursing home, and trying to decide under pressure which one is best isn’t easy,” says Avery Comarow, Health Rankings Editor. “Top-rated nursing homes are worth considering and deserve special recognition.”
U.S. News’s evaluation of nursing homes is based on data from Nursing Home Compare, a consumer website run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The government agency sets and enforces standards for nursing homes (defined as facilities or portions of facilities enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid that provide 24-hour nursing care and other medical services). Homes earn an overall rating of one to five stars, as well as up to five stars in each of three underlying categories: health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care. U.S. News updates each nursing home’s ratings data quarterly.
“This rank is a direct reflection of the commitment to patient care that our staff at Spaulding West Roxbury have. Their unwavering commitment has set Spaulding West Roxbury apart as a top nursing and therapy center in the region and has earned our team recognition on a national level,” said Christine Reilly, Executive Director, Spaulding Therapy and Nursing Center West Roxbury.
Of more than 15,500 homes rated and profiled on the U.S. News website, Spaulding Therapy and Nursing Center West Roxbury was among the fewer than 1 in 8 that received a five-star overall rating in all four quarters of 2011.
“Spaulding’s recognition is an honor and an acknowledgement of hard work and dedication to our patients. “Our collaborative team at Spaulding shares a commitment to maximizing independence and quality of life for all patients. It is an honor for this commitment to be acknowledged. Our physicians, nurses, therapists and aids continue to make the lives our patients full and complete as we continue our mission,” Timothy Lynch, Vice President of Hospital Operations, Partners Continuing Care.
