We are proud to be named, once again, one of the nation’s “Best Nursing Homes” by U.S. News & World Report for 2019-20.

There were 2,969 nursing homes nationwide of which 19 are located in Maryland that earned the designation of a U.S. News “Best Nursing Home”. Hillhaven earned overall rating of High Performing which incorporates the highest ratings in both Short-Term and Long-Term Care.
“We are extremely proud of this recognition of Hillhaven earning a position on U.S. News & World Report’s 2019-20 Best Nursing Homes list,” says Chris McGee, Meridian Senior Living Vice President of Operations. “Our amazing staff works so diligently, and we pride ourselves in providing excellent care, attention to detail, and unparalleled customer service to our residents and families.”
U.S. News based their rankings on the analysis of published federal government data and the rating of factors that they have determined to greatly impact resident care, safety, and outcomes. In order to calculate an overall score for each facility, U.S. News evaluates the care of an encompassing range of resident circumstances including shorter term rehabilitation and long-term chronic care. U.S. News assesses consistency and levels of staffing in the nursing homes as these factors are significant in maintaining quality and safety of service. Weighed most heavily in the rankings, U.S. News measures resident outcomes including how often short-term patients effectively return home and how often long-term residents require hospital care.
