Indiana Among Top 10 in Ranking for Number of Best Nursing Homes

Indiana is among the top ten states for highest number of best nursing homes according to findings released this week by U.S. News and World Report. The digital news and information outlet is considered a leading expert in the evaluation and rating of health care providers across the country. A total of 71 Indiana senior care centers rated as U.S. News Best Nursing Homes for 2016-17. Only seven other states nationwide had more centers on the list. Additionally, the city of Indianapolis tied with Louisville, Kentucky for second place for most homes rated as a Best Nursing Homes.

In a press release, U.S. News and World Report stated the 2016-17 rankings were based on an updated methodology intended to “give users a better sense of how homes perform over time and to determine whether a home provides appropriate rehabilitation services.” Previously, the ratings relied solely on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS is the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes.

“The ratings released by U.S. News and World Report are a clear indication that Indiana care providers are not only striving for excellence in the quality of care they provide for Hoosiers, they are achieving it.” said Zach Cattell, President of the Indiana Health Care Association and Indiana Center for Assisted Living (IHCA/INCAL). “Even in light of the new, more comprehensive methodology and a complicated ever-changing regulatory environment, providers are setting the bar higher for themselves and meeting the challenge.”

The Indiana Health Care Association/Indiana Center for Assisted Living (IHCA/INCAL) is Indiana's largest trade association and advocate representing proprietary, not-for-profit and hospital-based skilled nursing, assisted living communities and Independent Living. IHCA's more than 350 member facilities care for more than 25,000 of Indiana's geriatric and developmentally disabled citizens, the majority of whom are low-income Medicaid recipients.
