Heartland Villa Center in Lewisport Kentucky announced today it has been recognized as a Best Nursing Home for 2024 by U.S. News & World Report.
Since 2009, U.S. News’ annual Best Nursing Homes ratings have assisted consumers in need of either short-term rehabilitation or long-term care for themselves or a family member.
Heartland Villa Center earned U.S. News Best Nursing Home status by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating for Long-Term Care. U.S. News gives the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those that satisfy U.S. News’ assessment of consistent performance in quality measures.
“Achieving a title of ‘Best Nursing Home for 2024’ is a significant accomplishment and reflects the dedication, hard work, and commitment of the Heartland Villa care team in providing excellent care and services,” states Melissa Powell, Chief Operating Officer. “I am so proud of the positive impact Heartland Villa has had on the lives of their patients, residents, families and the community they serve.”
For the 2024 edition, U.S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on patient and resident outcomes, such as infection rates; staffing levels; potentially inappropriate reliance on antipsychotic drugs; health inspection results and other indicators of quality.
“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 Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor 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.”
Calculating Best Nursing Homes
To calculate the Best Nursing Homes ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of quality measures obtained from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The U.S. News methodology factors data such as resident care, safety, and outcomes. 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.
