Transitional Care at Heinz Rehab Hospital earns Best Nursing Home status

Transitional Care at Heinz Rehab Hospital earned Best Nursing Home status for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report after achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating for Short-Term Rehabilitation. The designation of Best Nursing Home is only given to those homes that satisfy U.S. News’s assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures. 

This is the third consecutive year that the Allied Services facility in Wilkes-Barre has received the survey’s top rating of “High Performing” for Short-Stay Rehabilitation, earning them the title of “Best Nursing Homes,” and is one of only two 5-star Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rated Skilled Nursing Facilities in Luzerne County. 

The Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating was introduced in 2018 to provide patients and families with a clearer view of the quality of care provided by nursing homes to short-stay patients in need of intensive rehabilitation or nursing services before they return home after a surgery, stroke, accident, or illness.
