U.S. News & World Report, a recognized authority in healthcare rankings, in late October released its Best Nursing Homes rankings for 2019-2020. Little Sisters of the Poor St. Mary’s Home has been recognized as one of the top performing nursing homes not only in Illinois but in the country!
U.S. News evaluated more than 15,000 nursing homes nationwide, in every state and in nearly 100 metropolitan areas. Now in its 10th year, the Best Nursing Homes ratings reflects the analysis by U.S. News of data collected and published by the federal government to rank nursing homes on such factors as quality of care, safety, health inspections, and staffing, as well as other outcome and quality measures.
Of the 727 nursing homes in Illinois, only 63 received an overall rating of 5 out of 5. Of the 383 homes in the Chicago metropolitan area, only 48 received rated as highly. St. Mary’s Home was among these select top performers, earning the highest score of 5 Stars—a perfect 5 out of 5—in its overall rating.
