Top Worcester-area nursing homes named

Five nursing home providers in Greater Worcester have received top ratings in U.S. News & World Report's 2016-2017 Best Nursing Homes report released Wednesday.

This year, those topping the list with at least 4.5 out of a 5 ratings are: Beaumont Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing-University Campus in Worcester; Knollwood Nursing Center in Worcester; Meadows of Central Massachusetts in Leicester; Sandalwood Center in Oxford, and Whittier Rehabilitation Transitional Care Unit in Westborough.

All nursing home providers received five-star ratings, except Whittier, which received four-and-a-half stars. Providers had to receive a minimum of four-and-a-half starts to be deemed a "Best Nursing Home."

U.S. News & World Report launched nursing home ratings in 2009. To qualify as a Best Nursing Home this year, facilities had to earn an average of 4.5 stars or better during the 12 months of federal reports ending in October 2016 and had to consistently meet certain performance standards set by U.S. News during the period, such as earning at least 4 stars in the CMS overall rating for all 12 months.
