Friendship Manor receives 5 Star Ranking by U.S. News and World Report

FRIENDSHIP MANOR'S SILVER CROSS HEALTH AND REHABILITATION PAVILION EARNS A FIVE-STAR QUALITY RATING

For the third consecutive year, Friendship Manor's Silver Cross Health and Rehabilitation Pavilion has received a high ranking of five stars overall in U.S. News & World Report's annual Best Nursing Homes, released this week. The Best Nursing Homes 2013 ratings highlight the top nursing homes in each city and state, out of almost 16,000 facilities nationwide.

Best Nursing Homes draws on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a federal agency that assesses homes in three categories—health inspections, level of nurse staffing, and quality of care—and gives each an overall rating. "Fewer than one out of every five nursing homes got an overall rating of five stars," said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. "All seniors deserve the best nursing care available, and these are homes that merit their consideration by demonstrating such high quality."

Ted Pappas Jr., CEO/President proudly announced this award at employee meetings this week, telling his staff, "This ranking is a direct reflection of your dedication to resident care. Your unwavering commitment has set us apart as a top nursing and therapy center in the country. I am very proud of this accomplishment."
