Sibley Specialty Care Named Best Nursing Home
Sibley Specialty Care was named a “Best Nursing Home” by the U.S. News & World Report 2017-18 Nursing Home Finder report October 31st. Nursing homes are eligible to receive this distinction if they score between a 4.5 and 5.0 on a 5.0 scale. According to the report, Sibley Specialty Care received a perfect 5.0 rating and is recognized as a “Top Rated Nursing Home.” The report uses existing federal nursing home rating information and federally reported health care data to come up with their own rating system. Criteria such as annual state survey results, medical quality measures, staffing levels and rehabilitation outcomes are all formulated to reach the rating. Only 15% of nursing homes in the United States achieve the “Top Performing,” status of a 4.5 or higher.
This recognition is in addition to Sibley Specialty Care’s recent Silver National Quality Award received in early October by the American Health Care Association. Administrator Jessica McDyer says the caring environment the staff provide every day is the reason for their success. “We have such a great team who take pride in what they do and how they do it. Earning a top nursing home designation by U.S. News and World Report is based on certain measurements. We don’t receive those accolades unless we meet high standards. It’s our staff that make the difference!”
