“2018 has been a big year for the 60 West family of residents and staff. It was quite a thrill to celebrate our fifth anniversary in operation, becoming Five Star rated by CMS, earning an AHCA Bronze Award and now being named a Best Nursing Home by US News and World Report. This success can be attributed to the fact that we are a family and have pulled together to create this environment for the residents, families and staff. It’s rewarding, knowing where we started and seeing where we’re going together.” said Jessica DeRing, Administrator at 60 West.
US News and World Report’s rating process uses a standard for Best Nursing Home status that is more rigorous than even the star rating system utilized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
