Queen Anne Healthcare – a member of the Avamere Family of Companies – is recognized for its quality of care by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best nursing homes in America for the fourth year in a row.

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) March 29, 2014

Queen Anne Healthcare (located at 2717 Dexter Ave North Seattle, WA 98109) has a strong record of receiving recognition for the quality of care the staff provides to seniors in the Seattle, Washington area and surrounding communities. Queen Anne Healthcare is also a recipient of an American Health Care Association award for quality and was recognized by Seattle Met Magazine as one of the best places to work in 2013.

U.S. News and World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2014 ratings highlight the top nursing homes out of nearly 16,000 facilities across the country. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS), about 60 percent of individuals over 65 will require some type of skilled nursing and rehabilitation care services at some point in their life and over 40 percent will require care in a nursing home.

CMS assesses care communities in three categories—health inspections, level of nurse staffing, and quality of care—and gives each an overall rating. U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Home” designation to Queen Anne Healthcare because it earned an overall rating of five stars from CMS.

People in the greater Seattle Metro choose Queen Anne Healthcare for post-hospital care. Services provided at the skilled nursing campus include medically complex nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapy, and transitional care.

“Our mission is to enhance the life of every person we serve,” says John Kirk, Administrator for Queen Anne Healthcare. “That mission drives us to provide quality care and services so our patients can obtain a level of independence and comfort.”
