Five-Star Rating 6 years in a row by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

We are proud to have been recognized again in 2022 with a 5-STAR rating. Thank you to our amazing team. We are the ONLY free-standing skilled nursing facility in Orange County with 5-stars in every category.


Out of 1,187 skilled nursing homes in California, Town & Country has been ranked 13th, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). That puts us in the top 1 percent! Nationally, this means we are ranked in the 91st percentile.

About the rating: The overall rating from CMS is based on measured data that’s publicly reported on the CMS Nursing Home Compare tool. The tool combines up to 51 measures across seven aspects of quality—including patient experience and effectiveness of care—into a single star rating for each nursing center. Participating nursing centers report data to CMS, the federal agency that runs the Medicare program, through the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program. Those centers are given an overall rating that ranges from one to five stars, with five as the highest score and four the most common score. Town & Country has consistently achieved a Five-Star Rating—year in and year out.

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.
