PRLog - March 7, 2014 - WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center has received the highest possible overall rating of five stars in U.S. News & World Report’s sixth annual “Best Nursing Homes” category.
The Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center is located in Yonkers, N.Y.
The 2014 “Best Nursing Homes” ratings highlight the top nursing homes in each city and state, out of nearly 16,000 facilities nationwide. U.S. News’ goal is to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home in 2014 find a home with a strong track record of good care. “Best Nursing Homes” draws on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), 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.
U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Homes” designation to homes that earned an overall rating of five stars from CMS in January 2014.
“We do not work for accolades; however, when we receive such recognition as a five star rating from U.S. News & World Report in so many critical categories of patient care, it does indeed feel gratifying that our work in support of our 137 children with extraordinary medical complexities is validated and recognized,”
