Covenant Shores retirement community received five out of five stars, the highest possible overall rating, in U.S. News & World Report’s fifth annual Best Nursing Homes.
The report is available online at http://www.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes.
“We’re proud to offer the very best to rehab patients and seniors in the Seattle area,” says Pamela J. Gill, Covenant Shores health care administrator, in a prepared statement. “Our five-star rating reflects the commitment of each employee at our Health Center.”
The federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services gathered the data and ranked the nursing homes. U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Home” designation to homes that earned an overall rating of five stars from CMS in January 2013. The rankings depended on health inspections, level of nurse staffing, and quality of care.
