Liberty Commons Named Top Nursing Home by US News & World Report
Liberty Commons at Broad Reach Healthcare, a leader of rehabilitation and skilled nursing care in Massachusetts, is named one of the nation’s Best Nursing Homes by U.S. News & World Report, a leading expert in the evaluation and rating of health care providers across the country.
On any given morning, roughly 1.4 million individuals, including 1 in 10 individuals age 85 and above, will wake up in a nursing home. Since its inception in 2009, U.S. News & World Report has been rating nursing homes all over the country, including over 400 facilities in Massachusetts.
Liberty Commons is one of only two nursing homes on Cape Cod to have received “Top Performing” status this year, which is the second year in a row for Liberty Commons.
U.S. News nursing home ratings have relied on data from Nursing Home Compare (https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare), a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. CMS assigns an overall rating of one to five stars to nursing homes according to their performance in three areas, or domains – state-conducted health inspections, nurse staffing and medical quality measures. Homes also receive CMS star ratings in each domain.
“This acknowledgement confirms what we already know: Broad Reach Healthcare is a great place and our staff work hard 24/7. With that being said, it’s a tremendous accomplishment and tribute to both great leadership and teamwork involved in providing the highest quality care at Liberty Commons” says, Bill Bogdanovich, President and CEO. “I could not be more proud of how well our staff works together to ensure our residents’ daily lives is an individualized, enriching experience while also upholding our work ethic to the highest standards.”
