BHS communities recognized in US News and World Report’s ‘Best Nursing Homes’

Fifteen senior care communities in the Benedictine Health System, a leading faith-based provider of quality senior care and living services in the Midwest, received the top high performing recognition in overall quality in the nursing home category and/or in the new category of overall quality of short-stay rehabilitation, as noted in the recently released 2018-2019 U.S. News and World Report “Best Nursing Homes” report.

More than 15,000 nursing homes across the country were evaluated and received one of five Overall Quality ratings – High Performing, Better than Average, Average, Worse than Average, or Poor. New this year, those with sufficient relevant volume also received one of three Short-Stay Rehabilitation Overall Quality ratings – High Performing, Average, or Below Average.
