Spaulding Brighton Nursing and Therapy Center Earns Highest Performing Rating in US News & World Report 2023-24 Best Nursing Homes Survey
Brighton, MA – For the sixth straight year U.S. News & World Report named Spaulding Brighton Nursing and Therapy Center a Best Nursing Home for Short-Term Rehabilitation. Honored each year since opening in 2017, Spaulding Brighton was selected as a Best Nursing Home for 2023-24 by U.S. News & World Report.
Spaulding Brighton earned Best Nursing Homes status by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating, for short-term rehabilitation. U.S. News gives the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those facilities that satisfy U.S. News’s assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures.
“Skilled nursing facilities have a vital role in health care supporting a wide range of medical complexity and patient populations. For the Spaulding Brighton team to continually achieve these outstanding recognitions is a direct result of their unwavering focus on delivering the highest quality care each day. Their performance has been nothing short of exemplary and we are incredibly proud of the entire team,” said Ross Zafonte, DO, President, Spaulding Rehabilitation.
Since 2009, the U.S. News Best Nursing Homes ratings and profiles offer comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for nearly all of the nation’s 15,000-plus nursing homes. The Best Nursing Homes ratings reflect U.S. News’ exclusive analysis of publicly available data using a methodology defined by U.S. News that evaluates factors that it has determined most greatly impact patient and resident care, safety, and outcomes.
Best Nursing Homes ratings are based on U.S. News’ in-depth analysis of publicly available data, including information that is not factored into CMS’s star ratings. Only 19% of skilled nursing facilities in the country earned a High Performing rating in short- or long-term categories.
The Short-Term Rehabilitation rating is based on U.S. News’ assessment of ten quality measures focusing on staffing, medical outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care. U.S. News used scientific literature review, discussions with industry experts and statistical modeling to select these measures.
This rating designates nursing homes as High Performing, Average or Below Average in the care they provided to residents who spent 100 days or fewer at a skilled nursing facility for care needed as a result of a stroke or accident, joint replacement or other rehabilitation-focused recovery.
