Second Year on The U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll for Best Nursing Homes
Greenport, NY (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
Every year 15,500 nursing homes nationwide are considered for the U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll for “Best Nursing Homes in America.” For the second consecutive year, The Shores at Peconic Landing has received this national recognition as one of the top nursing homes in the country.
What does it take to qualify as one of the “Best Nursing Homes in America"? Each received a perfect five-star rating for four straight quarters from the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Nursing homes are evaluated based on health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of care.
Today’s top-notch nursing homes offer much more than quality care. The Shores offers individualized care, dedicated professionals and a secure, home-like environment where residents can maintain or improve their quality of life. A wide variety of programs and activities encourage engagement and social interaction.
“The U.S. News’ Best Nursing Homes aims to make one of life’s most difficult decisions a little easier,” according to Angela Haupt, author, U.S. News. “Everyone deserves a home that will take care of their health needs and treat them with dignity. But only some nursing homes consistently deliver.” The Shores at Peconic Landing has been delivering quality care and services to their residents on the East End since 2002 with the added benefit of a beautifully serene location overlooking the Long Island Sound.
“We are grateful to be included on the Honor Roll of Best Nursing Homes for the second year in a row,” states Robert Syron, CEO of Peconic Landing. “This recognition demonstrates our commitment to providing outstanding services to residents and family members. We are dedicated to empowering residents to realize their full potential while maintaining their privacy, independence, security and peace of mind.”
