Sentara Windermere (Va. Beach) & Nursing Center Portsmouth earn 5 stars

Washington D.C. – February 7, 2012 – For the second consecutive year, two Sentara Nursing Centers have received a five star overall ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Nursing Homes survey. Best Nursing Homes recognizes top-rated homes in all 50 states and offers important guidance to families and healthcare providers caring for people in need of a nursing home.

Of more than 15,500 homes rated quarterly by U.S. News, Sentara Windermere and Nursing Center Portsmouth were among fewer than 1 in 8 that received a five-star overall rating in all four quarters of 2011.

“This recognition speaks to Sentara’s commitment to quality across the continuum of care,” says Bruce Robertson, president of Sentara Life Care.  “Whether you’re in the hospital or rehab or long term care, we strive to meet the highest standards.”

U.S. News’s evaluation of nursing homes is based on data from Nursing Home Compare, a consumer website run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The government agency sets and enforces standards for nursing homes.  Homes earn an overall rating of one to five stars, as well as up to five stars in each of three categories: health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care.
