Port Clinton’s Edgewood Manor Nursing Center has received the highest possible overall rating of five stars in U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Nursing Homes, available exclusively at usnews.com/best-nursing-homes.
The Best Nursing Homes ratings highlight the top nursing homes in each city and state, out of nearly 16,000 facilities nationwide. U.S. News’s goal is to help users find a home with a strong track record of good care.
Best Nursing Homes draws on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a federal agency that assesses homes in three categories-health inspections, level of nurse staffing, and quality of care-and gives each an overall rating.
U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Home” designation to homes that earned an overall rating of five stars.
“We are so pleased to be named to this honor. I am so proud of the staff at Edgewood Manor for their dedication to our residents,” stated Denice Day, Edgewood Manor Executive Director. “We are so excited to add this honor to our list of accomplishments-American Health Care Association Silver Award, Medicare and Medicaid 5 Star, Better Business Bureau Torch Award and Covenant Care Clinical Excellence,” added Day
“Fewer than one out of every five nursing homes got an overall rating of five stars,” said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. “All seniors deserve the best nursing care available, and these are homes that merit their consideration by demonstrating such high quality.”
