Life Care Center of Burlington, Kansas, was recently named a 2017-2018 U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Home.
U.S. News & World Report rates centers using data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services covering health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of care.
Life Care Center of Burlington is one of just over 2,000 facilities in the country that received the Best honor, achieving top nursing home status among more than 15,000 nationwide. Fewer than 15 percent of nursing homes nationwide received a Best rating.
“When I heard that we were selected as part of the best nursing homes in the country, I felt very proud,” said J. Michael Gilmore, food service manager. “I like the fact that we are a small-town facility. We are able to keep our community’s loved ones close to home and show them that they have made the right choice by placing them in our care. With this acknowledgement, we are able to go a step further to help them see their loved ones are in good hands.”
