Spaulding Brighton Nursing and Therapy Center Earns Highest Performing Rating in US News & World Report 2022-23 Best Nursing Homes Survey
Brighton, MA – For the fifth straight year U.S. News & World Report named Spaulding Brighton Nursing and Therapy Center a Best Nursing Home for Short-Term Rehabilitation in the 2022-2023 survey. Honored each year since opening in 2017, this recognition places Spaulding Brighton among a select group of U.S. skilled nursing facilities that have been recognized as a Best Nursing Home for 2022-23 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.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to strain the entire health care spectrum but nowhere more so than skilled nursing facilities and nursing homes. Not only has the Spaulding Brighton team overcome every challenge placed before them, through it all they have kept their patients and staff safe. Their performance has been nothing short of exemplary,” said Ross Zafonte, DO, President, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network.
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.
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.
