Buffalo, NY – Newsweek has ranked The McGuire Group’s Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg and Garden Gate Health Care Facility in Cheektowaga among the nation’s top 450 facilities out of 11,849 analyzed for its Best Nursing Homes report. Additionally, Garden Gate placed 19th and Autumn View placed 32nd on the New York state list out of more than 600 facilities in the state.
Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista to create the annual ranking. The results are based on performance data, peer recommendations and handling of COVID-19, relative to in-state competition. Nursing homes in the 25 states with the highest population size, according to The United States Census Bureau (2020) were included in the study.
“We’re extremely proud of our teams at Autumn View and Garden Gate who have stepped up during the most challenging of times to ensure the health and well-being of our residents while continuing to incorporate the progressive programs and services that are inherent of our five-star federal rating,” stated Chief Operating Officer, Susan Grigg, RN, BSN, CRRN, LNC, LNHA.
Statista used Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data to determine the performance of nursing homes. For peer recommendations, Statista invited over 10,000 medical experts to an online survey. Additionally, experts from all over the US could participate in the survey of the Best Nursing Homes by State on newsweek.com. Email verification was required and self-recommendation was not possible.
The survey data was collected from July to August 2021. Statista and Newsweek calculated a COVID-19 score for each facility, using CMS and other official data, to identify nursing homes which have had the best possible response and protocols during the pandemic. The overall rating is the weighted average of the performance data score, the reputation score and the COVID-19 score. Each score is weighted with 1/3. The best 450 nursing homes were awarded with a rank in their own state, resulting in 25 individual lists.
