Hamburg, NY – Newsweek has ranked The McGuire Group’s Autumn View Health Care Facility as No. 29 out of more than 600 facilities in New York state and among the nation’s top 750 out of 12,273 facilities analyzed for its 2024 Best Nursing Homes report.
Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista to create the annual ranking. The results are based on performance data, peer recommendations, management of the COVID-19 situation and accreditations from The Joint Commission and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. For the first time, resident satisfaction data for nursing homes, based on national safety goals from The Joint Commission and Google scores, has been added to the scoring model. Additionally, for the first time, the ranking included nursing homes with 100-149 beds, in addition to those with more than 150 beds as in previous years. Nursing homes in the 25 states with the highest population size, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS, 2023), were included in the study.
“This ranking is reflective of our team’s commitment to develop and implement impactful programs that are challenging the status quo in long-term care,” stated Chief Executive Officer, Susan Grigg, RN, BSN, CRRN, LNC, LNHA. “Our clinically progressive programs are allowing us to make a significant difference in the lives of our residents and in the overall quality of care in our community.”
Statista used Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data to determine the performance of nursing homes. For peer recommendations, Statista invited thousands of medical experts including nurses, nursing home administrators, therapists, physicians and nursing assistants to participate in an online survey. Additionally, experts from across the US could participate in the survey of America’s Best Nursing Homes by state on newsweek.com.
The survey data was collected from June to July 2023. Statista and Newsweek calculated a COVID-19 score for each facility using CMS data to identify nursing homes that had the best possible response and protocols during the pandemic. For the first time, resident satisfaction data for nursing homes, based on national safety goals from The Joint Commission and Google scores, has been added to the scoring model.
The overall rating is the weighted average of the performance data score 35%, the reputation score 35%, the COVID-19 score 18%, the resident satisfaction score 7% and the accreditation score 5%.
