Mountain Vista Senior Living Community Health Center in Wheat Ridge was recently ranked third in Colorado as part of “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024” by Newsweek Magazine. The following is an excerpt from that article:
Families across the nation entrust nursing homes with the health and dignity of their loved ones. Finding the right facility is not just about numbers; it’s about ensuring your family member receives the care and attention they deserve.
To support families as they consider their options, Newsweek has partnered with respected global data research firm Statista to create our third annual ranking of America’s Best Nursing Homes.
The rankings are based on five data sources, including performance data, peer recommendations, management of the COVID-19 situation and accreditations from The Joint Commission and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. For the first time, resident satisfaction data for nursing homes, based on National Safety Goals from The Joint Commission and Google Scores, has been added to the scoring model.
This is a tremendous honor for the community, especially since one of the data sources used to earn this ranking was from peer recommendations. For those who have been part of the Mountain Vista community, either as a resident or as a staff member, this recognition is well deserved.
We recently asked some of our staff what they enjoy most about working at Mountain Vista. The unanimous consensus was the wonderful bonds they’ve formed not only with one another, but with the residents. Here are some of the examples of what the Mountain Vista staff had to say: “Priceless moments;” “more friends that I can count;” “so many wonderfu
l people under one roof;” “the wonderful residents I have grown to love;” “awesome coworkers who care.”
Mountain Vista has a history of offering seniors and families choices for housing and health care services. The foundation of our mission ensures our number one priority remains the safety and well-being of residents.
Again, we congratulate our staff members, past and present, who have worked to make our community a success. We look forward to another year of excitement, fun activities and new friendships. You can read the entire Newsweek article here:
