St. John’s Home Designated as High Performing Long-term Care Provider
St. John’s Home was recently recognized as a “High Performing” provider of long-term care by U.S. News and World Report for 2019-2020. The designation places St. John’s among the 19% of skilled nursing facilities in the United States that earned this highest possible rating.
“St. John’s takes seriously its commitment to delivering outstanding long-term care in innovative ways,” says Nate Sweeney, vice president of skilled services. “This recent designation by U.S. News and World Report reinforces the idea that moving away from the institutional model of nursing home care does not need to mean compromising the quality of care provided. On the contrary, this data-driven designation shows that movements like the St. John’s transition to small homes can give residents a true alternative to traditional nursing home care while continuing to meet and exceed the high standards our industry demands. In fact, we believe that it is our commitment to nurturing environments where relationships are at the center of our care that drive the measures of quality to higher levels.”
According to U.S. News and World Report, the ratings reflect a detailed analysis of available data impacting patient and resident care, safety, and positive outcomes. “The U.S. News Best Nursing Home ratings hone in on measurements like emergency room visits, quality of staff, and proper distribution of medical and physical therapy to help families make an informed decision,” said Kim Castro, editor and chief content officers of U.S. News. “These ratings help individuals and their families begin their search for senior care and should be used in consultation with a medical professional and in-depth on-site visits.”
