Life Care Center of Stonegate, a skilled nursing and rehab facility in Parker, Colorado, was recently named a 2018-2019 U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Home for Short-Term Rehab.
This year, the publication changed how it lists its ratings. Centers around the country were rated in an Overall category, and those that offer short-term rehabilitation were rated in an additional category – Short-Stay Rehab. According to Mark White, vice president of specialty marketing at U.S. News, “Only 19 percent of U.S. nursing homes earned at least one badge; some earned both.”
The Short-Stay Rehab category takes into account staffing, outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care, as well as vaccination percentages, nursing staff training and other measures.
“This team continues our commitment to providing the highest quality care and rehabilitation in the industry,” said Lucas Carroll, executive director at the center. “We set ourselves apart by tailoring the therapy program to each patient, including the same therapy team throughout the stay.”
The facility’s most recent annual survey was deficiency-free, and the building is also ranked at five out of five stars by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
