Lawrence Presbyterian Manor named to Best Nursing Homes list by U.S. News and World Report

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

Lawrence Presbyterian Manor 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 Lawrence Presbyterian Manor, 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:

• 6% of residents were hospitalized during their stay, a much lower number when compared to 21.9% in Kansas and 22.5% nationally.

• 5.5% of short-term resident needed to visit the ER during their stay, also much lower than 12% in Kansas and nationally.

Lawrence Presbyterian Manor can serve up to 40 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 Lawrence Presbyterian Manor, two other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) communities were also recognized for their short-term rehab: Topeka Presbyterian Manor and Manor of the Plains in Dodge City.

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.
