U.S. News & World Report Names Radford Green at Sedgebrook Among Best in Illinois

Lincolnshire – Radford Green at Sedgebrook has been recognized as a Best Nursing Home for Short Term Rehabilitation and Long Term Care for 2022-2023 by U.S. News & World Report.

The annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, now in their 13th year, assist prospective residents and their families in making informed decisions in consultation with their medical professionals about where to receive short-term or long-term nursing home care. Only 16% of U.S skilled-nursing facilities earned the “Best Nursing Home” designation this year.

Radford Green at Sedgebrook rated the highest performing for Short Term Rehabilitation and Long Term Care.

“We are so proud of our team and this recognition validates the hard work and dedication that the team puts forth each and every day,” said Jessica Bartel, Radford Green Health Center administrator. “This accolade is a testament to the processes in place generating positive outcomes on a consistent basis. Radford Green is where I would send my own mother for care! The compassionate staff reflects their 5-star Medicare rating status since opening in 2009.”

For 2022-2023, U. S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on care, safety, infection rates, staffing and health inspections. For the first time, the Best Nursing

Homes ratings feature a new measure on weekend staffing and another new measure on infection rates that led to hospitalizations.

“Choosing the right nursing home based on care needs and comfort is a critical decision for prospective residents and their families,” said Zach Adams, health data engineer at U.S. News. “The Best Nursing Homes ratings highlight nursing homes that excel in short-term rehabilitation and long-term care needs.”

The Best Nursing Homes methodology factors data such as resident care, safety, and outcomes. To calculate the Best Nursing Homes ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of data obtained from the Centers for

Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Both short- and long-term ratings include data on consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs, and success in preventing ER and hospital visits. The long-term care rating also includes measures of whether a home changed ownership and how well they were staffed on weekends. The short-term rehabilitation rating also includes measures of a home’s success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections, and making sure residents are able to return homes.
