Skilled Nursing

U.S. News & World Report has named Kaweah Health’s Skilled Nursing Program a Best Nursing Home for 2019-20, a distinction shared with only 19 percent of U.S. skilled nursing facilities in the nation. Kaweah Health’s Skilled Nursing program earned Best Nursing Homes status by achieving the highest possible rating for providing short-term rehabilitation to patients. U.S. News & World Report gives the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those homes that satisfy U.S. News’s assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures. The Best Nursing Homes ratings reflect U.S. News’ analysis of publicly available data, which evaluates factors that most greatly impact patient and resident care, safety, and outcomes.
