Friendly Home Named A "Best Nursing Home" by U.S. News & World Report

Dec 28 2017

Roughly 1.4 million individuals, including one in 10 over the age of 85, will wake up in a nursing home in the United States.

Locally, Friendly Home has been named a “Best Nursing Home” by U.S. News & World Report for the second year in a row. Friendly Home, located on East Avenue in Brighton, was ranked in the top 15 percent of 15,000 skilled nursing facilities evaluated across the nation. Of the Rochester-area’s 47 nursing homes, only five organizations received this recognition.

The designation is given only to nursing homes that demonstrate consistent top performance in national quality measures. Of the 613 nursing homes in New York state, 84 received an overall top performance rating.

“On behalf of our board of directors and leadership team, we sincerely thank each and every Friendly Home team member for their role in achieving this level of excellence,” said Glen Cooper, president and CEO of Friendly Senior Living, the continuum of communities that includes Friendly Home. “It is the dedicated and compassionate care we deliver to our Members, always, that makes this ranking possible.”
