Ecumen has received a "Best Nursing Home" rating by U.S. News & World Report magazine. Fewer than 15 percent of nursing homes in the nation achieve the "best" status.
Ecumen received a 5.0 "top performing" rating - the highest rating possible.
"We are so pleased to receive this national recognition from U.S. News & World Report," said Katie Lundmark, Executive Director of Ecumen Detroit Lakes. "This top national ranking is expert validation of the exceptional care we provide. This is one of the highest compliments our outstanding staff can receive."
Of the 374 nursing homes in Minnesota, 99 received an overall "Top Performing" rating. U.S. News evaluated more than 15,000 homes nationwide.
Ecumen also has received the highest possible overall quality rating of 5 stars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). The U.S. News & World Report rating is based on the Medicare rating, but also adds enhancements to make the rating more meaningful, including looking at performance over time. Ratings are based on health inspections, staffing data (the number of hours of care provided to each resident by nursing staff), and quality measures (how well a nursing home cares for residents' physical and clinical needs).
Emmanuel Nursing Home on the Detroit Lakes campus specializes in both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care and has been serving seniors for more than 50 years. Ecumen also offers independent living, assisted living, memory care, adult day care, and home care.
