U.S. News & World Report “America’s Best Nursing Homes”

Two Rae-Ann skilled nursing facilities have been named to the prestigious “America’s Best Nursing Homes” list for 2014 by U.S. News & World Report.

Rae-Ann Suburban in Westlake, Ohio and Rae-Ann Geneva in Geneva, Ohio were selected by U.S. News. This is the sixth year in a row that Rae-Ann Suburban has earned this distinction and the second year in a row Rae-Ann Geneva has been named to the U.S. News list.

U.S. News’s evaluation of nursing homes, reported on its website 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.

Both Rae-Ann facilities earned five-star overall scores in the latest CMS evaluation, placing them in the top ranks of the nation’s 15,000+ nursing homes. Only 10% of the nursing homes in Ohio earned the five-star designation.
