Three Exceptional Living Centers managed facilities have received the highest possible overall rating of five stars in U.S. News 2016-2017 Best Nursing Homes, available exclusively at http://www.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes. Recognized are Exceptional Living Center of Brazil (Brazil, IN), Morning Breeze Retirement Community & Healthcare Center (Greensburg, IN), and Parkview Nursing & Rehabilitation (Wilmington, DE).
The Best Nursing Homes ratings highlight the top nursing homes in each city and state, out of nearly 15,000 facilities nationwide. U.S. News’ goal is to help users find a home with a strong track record of good care.
Best Nursing Homes draws on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), a federal agency that assesses homes in three categories—health inspections, level of nurse staffing, and quality of care—and gives each an overall rating.
U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Home” designation to homes that earned an overall rating of five stars from CMS in January 2016.
"Recognition from the U.S. News & World Report reflects the care our team members show residents each day. Our mission focuses on providing compassionate care and exceeding expectations of those we serve. These centers are recognized for living up to that mission of care," said Tom Watts, president and CEO of Exceptional Living Centers.
Fewer than one out of every five nursing homes received an overall rating of five stars. All seniors deserve the best nursing care available, and these are homes that merit their consideration by demonstrating such high quality.
