Maplewood Nursing Home has earned the distinction of being named a Best Nursing Home for both Short-Term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care for 2024 by U.S. News & World Report. The facility attained the prestigious Best Nursing Homes status by achieving a rating of 5 out of 5 and a “High Performing” designation, the highest possible achievement. U.S. News grants the Best Nursing Home title exclusively to those homes that satisfy their assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent excellence in quality performance measures.
Now in its 13th year, the annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, assist prospective residents and their families in making informed decisions about where to receive short-term rehabilitation or long-term nursing home care. For 2024, more than 15,000 nursing homes were rated, with only 19% earning the coveted “High Performing” rating.
“I am honored and proud that The Maplewood has been recognized as a 2024 Best Nursing Home,” says Greg Chambery, Administrator. “I’d like to thank our exceptional staff for their unwavering commitment and hard work in delivering high-quality care to our residents. Despite unprecedented challenges of the past few years, our staff remain dedicated to our residents and keeping our care at this level. This award is a testament to their efforts and affirms that The Maplewood consistently meets the expectations of our residents’ families in providing the best care and quality of life for their loved ones.”
“U.S. News’ Best Nursing Homes ratings give patients, senior residents, their families and caregivers an objective assessment of quality, to help them choose the facility that best fits their individual needs,” said Daniel Lara Agudelo, health data analyst at U.S. News. “Nursing homes that have earned the recognition of U.S. News have a track record of achieving better outcomes for patients and residents, and maximizing the amount of care they receive from nurses and other staff.”
To calculate the Best Nursing Homes ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of quality measures obtained from CMS. The U.S. News methodology factors in data such as data on resident care, safety, outcomes and other aspects of quality. Both short- and long-term ratings include data on nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs and success in preventing ER and hospital visits. The long-term care rating also includes measures of whether a home changed ownership and how well they were staffed on weekends.
