Sullivan County Nursing Home Named in top 11 for NH

U.S. News and World Report named Sullivan County Health Care among the 11 best nursing homes in New Hampshire.  The list came out last week and Sullivan County Health Care made the list out of 73 nursing homes in NH.

U.S. News and World Report gathered their information from the U.S. government’s Medicare website, where consumers can make informed nursing home choices.

Medicare ranks nursing homes on health and facility inspections, staffing levels, data on medical care quality measures, fire safety inspections, federal government enforcement actions, and how well nursing home residents are treated in specific areas of care.  Sullivan County Health Care currently holds a 5-Star Rating.

Ted Purdy, the Sullivan County Health Care Administrator, and Patti Henderson, the Sullivan County Health Care Director of Nursing, attribute these honors as a direct result of the care and services given by their staff – staff that is committed and strive on an ongoing basis to meet resident needs, every day. Coos, Merrimack and Belknap County Nursing Homes also made the list.
