Ascension Skilled Nursing Facilities Named to Best Nursing Homes List

ST. LOUIS – Eight Ascension skilled nursing facilities have been named by U.S. News and World Report as some of “America’s Best Nursing Homes.” U.S. News and World Report identified the Best Nursing Homes for 2022-23 after evaluating more than 15,000 sites nationwide, in every state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas. 

The following skilled nursing facilities, all part of Ascension, were awarded the prestigious U.S. News and World Report badges.

  • Ascension Living Borgess Place, Kalamazoo, Michigan – Long-term care
  • Ascension Living Lakeshore at Siena, Racine, Wisconsin – Short-term rehabilitation 
  • Ascension Living Nazarethville Place, Des Plaines, Illinois – Long-term care
  • Ascension Living Providence Village, Waco, Texas – Long-term care, Short-term rehabilitation 
  • Ascension Living Resurrection Village Life Center, Chicago – Short-term rehabilitation 
  • Ascension Living Sherbrooke Village, St. Louis – Short-term Rehabilitation 
  • Ascension Living Via Christi Village Ridge, Wichita, Kansas – Long-term care
  • Haven of Our Lady of Peace, Pensacola, Florida - Short-term rehabilitation  

“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, MHA, BSN, RN, Senior Vice President of Post-Acute and At-Home Services, Ascension. “It is an honor to have eight of our communities nationally recognized by this leading publication.” 

Best Nursing Homes ratings are based on U.S. News’s in-depth analysis of publicly available data, including information that is not factored into the star ratings provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Unlike the star ratings, U.S. News publishes separate evaluations of short-term rehabilitation and long-term care; only 16% of U.S. skilled nursing facilities earned a High Performing rating in even one of those categories.

“U.S. News takes pride in providing relevant, up-to-date information when making any sort of healthcare decision,” said Zach Adams, health data engineer at U.S. News. “Profiles now include resident and staff COVID-19 vaccination rates alongside information on how to pay for a facility. This important information can help families, residents and caregivers make a decision that keeps safety and accessibility at the highest priority.”
