U.S. News and World Report names Memorial Care Center One of 'America's Best Nursing Homes'

U.S News and World Report recently announced Memorial Care Center (MCC) was again named as one of “America’s Best Nursing Homes for 2016-17.”  This is the seventh consecutive year MCC has received this ranking from U.S. News and World Report.

MCC was ranked among more than 15,000 facilities in the country.  Approximately one in seven nursing homes surveyed receives a five-star ranking.

The rankings are based on numbers from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces quality standards for all homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid.  Facilities receive an overall rating of one to five stars from the government based on the number of stars earned in three other categories: health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of care.

Memorial Care Center is licensed and certified by the Illinois Department of Public Health and is connected to Memorial Hospital. It is an 82-bed facility offering high-quality nursing and rehabilitative services. The facility offers state-of-the-art services for post-operative or short-term rehabilitative care as well as wound care and intravenous therapy services.
