Patient and family care is our number one priority.

More than 3 million Americans spent at least part of 2014 in a skilled nursing facility, and similar numbers are expected for 2015. Individuals and their families often encounter difficulty in choosing the right nursing home. Frequently asked questions including, "Where will I receive the highest quality care?" "Where will I be treated like a resident, not just a patient?" and "Where is the cleanest Nursing & Rehabilitation home with the best food?" weigh heavily on their minds.

In an effort to lighten the burden of such an important choice, U.S. News and World Report recently released its fifth annual "Best Nursing Homes" report. Using data from the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for skilled nursing homes, U.S. News awarded the "Best Nursing Homes" designation to homes that recently earned an overall rating of five stars, highlighting the top skilled nursing homes in each state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas. The ratings cover more than 15,000 nursing homes nationwide and are freely available at http://www.usnews.com/bestnursinghomes. Medicare likewise rated each skilled nursing home with one to five stars based on separate measures of quality of care, health-inspections record, and level of nurse staffing.

At the top of the list is Burien Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, a facility serviced by North American Health Care, Inc. Medicare has given all 35 facilities serviced by North American Health Care a five-star rating. Statistically, less than 23% of all skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation facilities in the United States will achieve this level of success. No other similar organization in the United States has consistently achieved this level of patient care.

“At Burien Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, patient and family care is our number one priority,” said Lynda Baldwin, Administrator. “The Burien team makes it a personal mission to ensure that each patient is comfortable and that we are providing a healing environment for all who are here.”

Residents are highly complimentary. “I have been in other nursing facilities, and this is the best;” “Thank you so much of the wonderful care of our father. You are a top-notch facility with a very caring staff” and “Burien Nursing’s professional and caring staff made all the difference in my speedy recovery. A clean environment and attentive staff members” are some of the more recent testimonials that speak to the care and culture of Burien Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.
