Prestonsburg HealthCare Center owned and operated by Louisville based Signature HealthCare was listed along with several Signature owed facilities as U.S. News & World Report’s sixth annual list of the nation’s Best Nursing Homes.
The report highlights top nursing homes in each state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas, covering nearly 16,000 nursing homes nationwide. The list is compiled using data published in January by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which sets and enforces standards for nursing homes.
U.S. News has awarded the ‘Best Nursing Home’ distinction to homes that earned an overall rating of five stars, the highest rating CMS awards nursing homes. Under the five star rating systems, nursing homes are assessed in three main categories: health inspections, quality measures and staffing. The overall rating combines scores received in each of the three categories.
