Salude Named Among the Best Nursing Homes by U.S. News and World Report for Fourth Year in a Row

For the fourth year in a row, Salude was named a leading nursing home in the United States for short-term rehabilitation care by U.S. News and World Report.

Salude was recognized as being among the elite 13% of skilled nursing facilities that earned a coveted “High Performing” rating, met the 75% staff vaccination rate for COVID-19, and therefore was considered as high performing in short-term rehabilitation.

This rating evaluates a facility’s quality of post-acute care for patients recovering from a hospital stay, such as after stroke, heart attack, infection or accidental injury. The data used to evaluate facilities comes from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) and includes metrics for nurse staffing, COVID-19 staff vaccination rates, patient outcomes, facility complaints and rehabilitation therapy.

“Being recognized among the best in Georgia and the United States validates the hard work of our healthcare professionals, especially in the age of COVID-19,” said Dr. Alan L. Wang, MD, SFHM, FACP, Salude’s CEO. Salude strives to always do the right thing for their patients, which is evident in its mission to provide improved health outcomes, enhanced recovery and a safe transition home by delivering clinical excellence in a state-of-the-art healing environment.
