Lexington Health Network Awarded Three US News & World Report “Best” Awards in Short-Term Rehabilitation

US News & World Report recognized Lexington Health Network as “Best” in Short Term Rehabilitation for healthcare locations in Chicago Ridge, Lake Zurich, and LaGrange. This prestigious award coincides with “Five-Star Quality” ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

CMS created the “Five-Star Quality” rating to assist consumers, families, and caregivers in comparing nursing and rehabilitative facilities. The rating system gives each facility a rating between one and five stars. The “Five-Star Quality” rating bases the scoring methodology on three factors—state-conducted health inspections, staffing, and quality measures. Scores in each category are combined to calculate an overall rating.

US News & World Report gathers information from Nursing Home Compare, a consumer website published by CMS.

Lexington Health Network takes immense pride in providing the best and the highest quality of care to patients, residents, and their families through expert-trained staff, highly-rated rehabilitation services (offered seven days a week), and disease and condition specialty programs and protocols. “It is an honor to receive the title of ‘Best in Short-Term Rehabilitation’ from US News & World Report as it is our mission to offer compassionate and engaged care that helps patients gain strength and wellness to live life to the fullest potential,” states Fred Benjamin, Lexington Health Network Chief Operating Officer.

This year marks Lexington Health Network’s 35th anniversary for providing superior healthcare and senior-living options in the Chicagoland community. Lexington operates ten skilled-nursing facilities, three independent and assisted-living communities, and a full continuum of care services for aging seniors, including long-term care, independent and assisted living, home healthcare, hospice care, private care services, and sleep therapy. Lexington Health Network employs more than 2,500 people. Their mission is to nurture the human spirit and inspire well-being, one person and one family at a time.
