Life Care Center of Hendersonville, North Carolina, was recently named a 2018-2019 U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Home for Short-Term Rehab.
This year, the publication changed how it lists its ratings. Centers around the country were rated in an Overall category, and those that offer short-term rehabilitation were rated in an additional category – Short-Stay Rehab. According to Mark White, vice president of specialty marketing at U.S. News, “Only 19 percent of U.S. nursing homes earned at least one badge; some earned both.”
The Short-Stay Rehab category takes into account staffing, outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care, as well as vaccination percentages, nursing staff training and other measures.
“Our associates care deeply about our residents and providing them the best possible care and quality of life that they truly deserve,” said Tom Hager, executive director at the center. “The U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Home Award for two years in a row is a validation of our efforts to achieve consistency in meeting the needs of our residents. We have great teamwork and dedication to living out our motto, Whatever It Takes And Then Some!”
