Newsweek recognizes VHS for excellence

Newsweek magazine has recognized Valley Health Services in Herkimer as one of its Best Nursing Homes 2020.

Newsweek collaborated with Statista, a global data research firm to analyze and rank over 15,000 nursing homes in the United States, which accept Medicare and Medicaid, as well as offer continuing care. Out of the 15,000 nursing homes, only 400 across the 20 largest U.S. states made the list.

There are over 600 nursing homes in New York state and only 63 made this list. VHS was one of them. The homes were selected based on a survey among nurses, nursing assistants, therapists, administration and management working in skilled nursing facilities as well as an in-depth analysis of key performance indicators on staffing, quality measures and health inspections provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
