Friendly Home Ranked #2 in New York State on Newsweek’s Best Nursing Homes List

The Friendly Home has been recognized for excellence on Newsweek’s list of 2021 Best Nursing Homes. Of the 70 nursing homes in New York State that placed on the list, the Friendly Home was #2. This is the second consecutive year the Friendly Home has been named on the Best Nursing Homes list.

Newsweek partnered with Statista, a global research firm, to establish nursing home rankings based on rigorous criteria including performance data, peer recommendations, and response to COVID-19. Newsweek and Statista took extensive, multiple measures to address the impact of the global pandemic with the objective of recognizing those nursing homes which have put in place the best possible responses and protocols. The ranking identifies the 400 top nursing homes across 20 states; only three nursing homes in Monroe County were featured on the list of America’s Best Nursing Homes 2021.

“This prestigious recognition reflects the Friendly Home’s commitment to providing excellent and compassionate care and services always,” Friendly Senior Living President & CEO Glen Cooper said. “Our staff of healthcare super heroes goes above and beyond every day. Now more than ever, we are extremely grateful for every employee’s dedication to the safety and well-being of those we serve.”
