For the sixth year in a row, Salude was recognized as a leading nursing home in the United States for short-term rehabilitation care by U.S. News and World Report.
The 2022-23 Best Nursing Home ratings by U.S. News evaluated over 15,000 nursing homes throughout the country and rated most of them in two different areas: short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. Salude ranked as “High-Performing” in short-term rehabilitation.
This rating evaluates eligible nursing homes in the care for people in need of skilled nursing or rehabilitation services following hospitalization for surgery, heart attack, stroke, injury or other conditions. The data used to evaluate facilities comes from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) and includes metrics for nurse staffing, patient outcomes, facility complaints, patient safety and rehabilitation therapy.
