Manor of the Plains named to Best Nursing Homes list by U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News and World Report has named Manor of the Plains to the 2024 Best Nursing Homes list.

Manor of the Plains earned its U.S. News Best Nursing Home status by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating, for Short-Term Rehabilitation. U.S. News gives the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those that satisfy U.S. News’ assessment of consistent performance in quality measures. The Best Nursing Homes list was published November 14, 2023.

For the 2024 edition, U.S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on patient and resident outcomes. It analyzed data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other sources. The Short-Term Rehabilitation ratings are based on 10 quality measures including medical outcomes, staffing levels, and resident complaints.

At Manor of the Plains, U.S. News evaluated the Post-Acute-to Home (PATH®) program for people recovering from a hospital stay such as after a stroke, heart attack, or surgery. The report found that 57% of residents were able to return home after being discharged, a higher number than the Kansas average of 54.1% and the national average of 53.7%.

Manor of the Plains can serve up to 50 residents in the health center offering both short-term rehab and long-term care. The community also offers independent living and assisted living.

In addition to Manor of the Plains, two other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) communities were also recognized for their short-term rehab: Topeka Presbyterian Manor and Lawrence Presbyterian Manor.

U.S. News and World Report has been rating nursing homes annually since 2009. To learn more about their rating system, visit their FAQ page.
