DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (November 2021) – Pine Run Retirement Community is proud to announce that the Pine Run Health Center has been named among the “Best Nursing Homes” in the country for 2021-2022 by U.S. News & World Report. This is a designation achieved by an elite 13% of Short and Long-Term Care residences across the country.
Pine Run earned its Best Nursing Home status by achieving the highest possible rating, “High Performing,” for both its Short-Term Rehabilitation services and for Long-Term Care. The U.S. News rating is widely recognized as a symbol of excellence in U.S. healthcare that is awarded by an unbiased trust agent.
“We are proud that U.S. News again has recognized the Pine Run Health Center for both Long and Short-Term Care,” said Maria Santangelo, executive director of Pine Run Retirement Community. “This is the third consecutive year that we have received this honor and it is a true testament to our associates’ dedication and commitment to the well-being of our residents and families.”
Best Nursing Homes ratings are based on U.S. News’s in-depth analysis of publicly available data, including information that is not factored into the Center for Medicare and Medicaid star ratings. Unlike the star ratings, the U.S. News ratings recognize that patients undergoing relatively short-term rehabilitation have very different needs from those who require longer-term care.
This year’s ratings include some new requirements for a home to earn a High-Performing rating – most notably that federal CMS data published by October 14 must list the home as having a COVID-19 staff-vaccination rate of at least 75%. As of November 11, 2021, Pine Run and Doylestown Health are especially proud to have achieved 100% staff vaccination rate.
Of more than 15,000 U.S. skilled-nursing facilities evaluated by U.S. News, barely 2,000 earned even a single High-Performing rating.
