The Friendly Home has been ranked the No. 1 nursing home in New York state on Newsweek’s list of best nursing homes 2022.
The Friendly Home has appeared on Newsweek’s list of best nursing homes every year since it began publishing it three years ago. This year, the Friendly Home was one of only four Monroe County nursing homes to be included on the list. A total of 450 top facilities across 25 states were ranked, including 55 of the over 600 nursing homes located in New York state.
Newsweek partnered with Statista, a global data research firm, to establish nursing home rankings based on rigorous criteria, including performance data, peer recommendations and response to COVID-19.
“As the challenges of the COVID-19 global pandemic continue, this amazing achievement reflects our staff’s hard work and dedication to serving residents with excellence and compassion every day. We offer them our sincere and heartfelt congratulations and gratitude,” said Friendly Senior Living President and CEO Glen Cooper. “For over 170 years, the Friendly Home has been a leader in providing outstanding quality care for seniors, and we are extremely proud of Newsweek’s recognition as New York’s No. 1 nursing home.”
In addition to being first on Newsweek’s list of best nursing homes in the state, the Friendly Home received a first quintile (top) ranking from the New York State Department of Health’s Nursing Home Quality Initiative program. This program recognizes top nursing homes based on quality, compliance and efficiency measures. The Friendly Home also was recently awarded five stars from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the highest possible rating.
