For the second consecutive year, Alden Estates of Evanston Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, 2520 Gross Point Road, is ranked a “2012 Best Nursing Home” by U.S. News & World Report.

“This is a great honor. This recognition demonstrates how hard we work to deliver five-star, quality care to our residents,” says Bob Molitor, Alden’s chief operating officer.

U.S. News & World Report ranks and displays data about nearly every U.S. nursing facility. The “2012 Best Nursing Homes” profiles and ranks nursing homes using data and quality ratings from the federal government, recognizing those facilities that provide five-star care.

The rankings rely on information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces quality standards for all homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid. Alden Estates of Evanston received five stars overall. Only about one facility in eight throughout the nation meets this standard.

“More than three million Americans will spend part of 2012 in a nursing home, and trying to decide under pressure which one is best isn’t easy,” says Avery Comarow, health rankings editor at U.S. News & World Report. “Top-rated nursing homes are worth considering and deserve special recognition.”
