Columbine West and Lemay Ave. ranked No. 2 and No. 4 in Colorado
Newsweek’s America's Best Nursing Homes 2024 highlights the nation's top 750 nursing homes. Of the five skilled nursing homes recognized in Colorado, both Columbine West Health & Rehab and Lemay Avenue Health & Rehab are part of our Columbine Health Systems.
What Comprised the Ranking Criteria?
The rankings – of the 12,273 facilities Newsweek analyzed – are based on five data sources: performance data, peer recommendations, management of the COVID-19 situation, resident satisfaction, and accreditations. Newsweek utilized the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data (which awarded all four Columbine facilities an overall 5-star rating) to determine the performance of nursing homes. Newsweek also factored in peer recommendations from thousands of medical experts and resident satisfaction data National Safety Goals from The Joint Commission and Google review scores.
Accolade Affirms how Columbine Values and Respects Each Person
“This award reinforces what I know of our team,” said Columbine West Director of Nursing Jessica Jones. “They go above and beyond to ensure every person is valued and respected and are dedicated to improving the quality of life of every resident while they are in our care.”
“This is a huge honor,” said Lemay Avenue Director of Nursing Jenny Foster. “We have an amazing team of people here who are passionate about providing exceptional service!”
Newsweek introduces the report stating, “Families across the nation entrust nursing homes with the health and dignity of their loved ones. Finding the right facility is not just about numbers; it's about ensuring your family member receives the care and attention they deserve.”
Our COO, Joel Bitler, wholeheartedly agrees and says he’s glad others independently recognize how great our nursing facilities are.
