Friendly Home Ranked at Top of Newsweek’s 2024 “America’s Best Nursing Homes” List

For three consecutive years, out of over 600 nursing homes in New York, the Friendly Home has been ranked the #1 or #2 nursing home in the state on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Nursing Homes. In 2024, among nursing homes with 150+ beds, the Friendly Home was named #1 in Monroe County, and #2 in New York State.

Each year, Newsweek partners with Statista, a global data research firm, to establish nursing home rankings based on rigorous criteria. For 2024, these criteria included performance data, peer recommendations, management of COVID-19, resident satisfaction and accreditations.

“Quality outcomes are the result of the people who work tirelessly every day to deliver excellent and compassionate care to our residents. We are so grateful for their dedication,” said Amanda D. Brown, VP & Administrator of the Friendly Home. “As the Friendly Home looks forward to celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2024, this recognition reflects our long and proud history of providing exceptional non-profit, mission-driven service to older adults in the Rochester community.”
