Six Benedictine Communities ranked as High Performing in 2022-23 U.S. News Best Nursing Homes report

Six Benedictine Communities were ranked High Performing in the 2022-2023 U.S. News & World Report “Best Nursing Homes” ratings.

U.S. News and World Report evaluated more than 15,000 skilled nursing facilities throughout the country and rated them in two different areas: short term rehabilitation and long-term care.

The short-term rehabilitation rating is based on an assessment of 10 quality measures focusing on staffing, medical outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care provided to residents who spent 100 days or fewer at a skilled nursing facility for care needed as a result of a stroke or accident, joint replacement or other rehabilitation-focused recovery.

The long-term care rating is based on nine quality measures focusing on staffing, medical outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care such as vaccinations and appropriate use of some medications.

Earning the high performing rating for short-term rehabilitation were (in Minnesota): Benedictine Health Center, Duluth; Benedictine Living Community-New Brighton; Benedictine Living Community-Owatonna; Benedictine Living Community-Red Wing; and Benedictine St. Gertrude’s, Shakopee; and in Missouri – Benedictine Living Community-St. Joseph.

In addition, Benedictine Living Community-New Brighton earned the high performing rating for long term care.

“The heart of Benedictine’s Mission is serving those in need in keeping with our Core Values of Hospitality, Stewardship, Respect and Justice. Congratulations and thank you to all these Benedictine Living Communities for their hard work and dedication to living our Core Values daily while providing quality, compassionate care to those they serve,” said Jerry Carley, Benedictine president/CEO.
