[Parkersburg, WV] - November 29, 2021 – Willows Center, a skilled nursing facility affiliated with Genesis HealthCare, today announced that it has been identified as a Best Nursing Home for short-term rehabilitation for 2021-22 by U.S. News & World Report (U.S. News). Only 13% of the nation's skilled nursing facilities earned the U.S. News High Performing rating.
U.S. News offers comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for almost all nursing homes in the country. Individuals can easily conduct a customized search for a highly rated nursing home by location, Medicare and Medicaid coverage, Alzheimer's care and size.
U.S. News relies on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. For the 2021-22 ratings, U.S. News used a short-term rehabilitation and long-term care rating. The short-term rating aims to provide patients with a clearer view of the quality of care provided by nursing homes to short-stay patients in need of intensive rehabilitation or nursing services before they return home after a surgery, stroke, accident or illness.
“I am so proud that Willows Center has been identified as one of the best in the country,” states Christopher McBee, Center Executive Director of Willows Center. “Congratulations to the entire interdisciplinary team for their commitment and dedication to quality and positive outcomes.”
