NORRISTOWN, Pa., March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Regina Nursing Center, which provides both rehabilitation services and skilled nursing care to the chronically ill and the aged, has been named one of US News & World Report's Best Nursing Homes 2013 and received their highest rating. To develop the list, U.S. News collected data and ratings about nearly every nursing facility in the United States in the categories of state-conducted health inspections, nursing and physical therapy staffing, and quality of medical care.
Regina earned the highest possible overall rating of five stars from the federal government in January 2013, and Regina's profile on usnews.com will display a badge in recognition of this status throughout the year.
The data behind Best Nursing Homes come from Nursing Home Compare, a website run by the Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. CMS sets and enforces standards for nursing homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid. The agency also collects information from states and individual homes and assigns each home a rating of one to five stars.
Founded in 1963, Regina Nursing Center, privately owned and operated, has maintained its commitment and dedication to providing the highest quality of service and care to all residents for 50 years.
