Westchester Village of Lenexa Recognized by U.S. News & World Report
LENEXA, Kansas — Westchester Village of Lenexa was recently recognized for being on the U.S. News & World Report’s 2018–2019 Best Short-Stay Rehabilitation list.
U.S. News’ Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating was introduced this year. Only 16% of the 13,000 evaluated communities earned the award, according to U.S. News. This rating aims to give a better understanding of the care quality offered by a rehabilitation community.
Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News says, “Finding a nursing home that meets an individual’s specific needs can be overwhelming. The Best Nursing Home ratings are designed to help potential residents and their families navigate this important decision.”
According to U.S. News, “The new Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating designates nursing homes as high-performing, average, or below average in the care they provide to patients staying at the facility for less than 100 days.” CMS data was used to determine which communities earned the award.
Courtney O’Connor, Westchester Village of Lenexa’s executive director, is very excited about earning the award. She says, “I would like to thank our team for all of their hard work in upholding our high standards of care for our residents; I am extremely proud of every employee. In 2019 and beyond, we’ll continue to give our residents the best service and care possible.”
