Ascension Living Communities Named to Best Nursing Homes List

ST. LOUIS –  Four Ascension Living skilled nursing facilities have been recognized on Newsweek’s America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024 list. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on September 27, 2023, and can currently be viewed on the Newsweek’s website.

The America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024 ranking lists the nation’s leading nursing homes in the 25 states with the highest number of facilities according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The evaluation is based on five data sources: 

  • CMS Data: Used to determine the performance of nursing homes.
  • National Online Survey: Thousands of medical professionals (registered nurses, nursing home managers and administrators, licensed practical nurses / licensed vocational nurses, nursing assistants, therapists, and physicians) were surveyed. 
  • Management of the Covid-19 situation: A Covid-19 score for each facility was calculated, with the objective to award nursing homes which have had the best possible response and protocols during the pandemic.
  • Resident Satisfaction Data: National Patient Safety Goals from the Joint Commission and Google reviews were included.
  • Accreditation: Data on nursing homes provided by The Joint Commission (TJC) and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Based on the results of the study, Ascension Living Casa Scalabrini Village, Ascension Living Providence Village, Ascension Living Resurrection Village - Life Center and Our Lady of Peace are ecstatic to be recognized as among Newsweek’s America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024.
“This designation is a testament to the dedication, personalized care and service provided by every member of our care teams, who are driven by a commitment to delivering quality care and living out our mission,” said Lisa Musgrave, RN, Senior Vice President, Post-Acute and At-Home Services, Ascension. “It is an honor to have Ascension Living communities nationally recognized by this leading publication.”
