U.S. News and World Report Named Salude Among the Best Nursing Homes in the United States

For the third 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 2020-21 Best Nursing Home ratings by U.S. News evaluated over 15,000 nursing homes, with separate ratings for short-term rehabilitation care and long-term chronic care. Salude received an overall rating of five out of five and has a short-term rehabilitation rating of High Performing.

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, patient outcomes, facility complaints and rehabilitation therapy.

“To receive a High Performing ranking and to be recognized among the best in Georgia and the United States validates all of our healthcare professionals’ hard work. At Salude, we strive to always do the right thing for patients and provide improved health outcomes, enhanced recovery and a safe transition home,” said Dr. Alan L. Wang, MD, SFHM, FACP, Salude’s CEO.
