Regional One Health’s Skilled Nursing and Subacute Care facility has been recognized on U.S. News and World Report’s Best Nursing Homes list for the fourth year in a row.
The honor reflects the facility’s top-quality care, patient safety measures, and excellent outcomes.
For the fourth year in a row, Regional One Health’s Skilled Nursing and Subacute Care facility has been recognized as a Best Nursing Home by U.S. News and World Report. Regional One Health Subacute Care is among the top elite 13 percent of facilities in the United States earning this honor.
Regional One Health Subacute Care earned Best Nursing Homes status for 2021-22 by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating, for short-term rehabilitation.
U.S. News gives the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those facilities that satisfy its assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures. This year, additional requirements regarding patient safety had to be met in order to achieve a High-Performing rating, most notably at least 75 percent of staff needed to be vaccinated for COVID-19.
“We have an extremely dedicated team of professionals, and I commend their fortitude and steadfast desire to serve our patients through the pandemic. They have been extremely diligent to ensure we keep safety and quality at the forefront of everything we do,” said Nicole Lowe, LBSW, LNHA, MBA, administrator of Regional One Health Subacute Care.
Regional One Health Subacute Care is a skilled nursing unit providing post-acute care to patients.
The team provides physical and emotional support to patients and families as they navigate next steps in their care plan. Care includes skilled nursing and medical services; occupational, physical and speech therapy; social work; group and individualized activities; and special services customized to meet the individual patient’s clinical needs.
The U.S. News Best Nursing Homes ratings and profiles offer comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for nearly all of the nation’s 15,000-plus nursing homes.
The Best Nursing Homes ratings reflect U.S. News’ exclusive analysis of publicly available data using a methodology defined by U.S. News that evaluates factors that it has determined most greatly impact patient and resident care, safety, and outcomes.
This year, to accompany the new ratings, nursing home profile pages were updated to include a patient safety summary that reflects COVID-19 data alongside other measurements of safety and related advice on choosing a home or facility amidst the pandemic.
