About the awards: U.S. News and World Report evaluated more than 15,000 homes nationwide—in every state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas. This year, 2,969 nursing homes earned the designation of a U.S. News Best Nursing Home. Town & Country Skilled Nursing was one of them.
This year, U.S. News updated its methodology of evaluating nursing homes so that the designation of Best Nursing Home is awarded only to those homes that satisfy U.S. News’s assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures.
To be eligible for a U.S. News overall rating, homes needed to receive either a Short-Term Rehabilitation Rating or a Long-Term Care Rating. Homes rated High Performing in short-term rehabilitation, long-term care or both received a Best Nursing Home designation. Town & Country Skilled Nursing received both distinctions.
