Life Care Center of Sparta, Tennessee, recently earned two distinct honors – being named a 2016-2017 U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Home and earning a deficiency-free state survey.
U.S. News & World Report released its list in November. It rates centers using data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services covering health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of care. Fewer than 13 percent of nursing homes received a Best rating.
Life Care Center of Sparta is one of 2,005 facilities in the country that received the Best honor, achieving top nursing home status among more than 15,000 nationwide.
The state survey took place Dec. 12 – 14, 2016. Nursing facilities must meet hundreds of criteria to pass the state survey each year – from nursing care to food services to the physical condition of the building.
“It is a blessing to be part of an amazing family and corporation that provides premier quality care for our residents and the Sparta community,” said Marshal Huddleston, executive director. “Most importantly, the opportunity to speak God’s Word daily over our campus prepares a solid foundation for growth and success.”
