U.S. News names Covenant Shores to 2012 Nursing Home Honor Roll

The nursing home at Covenant Shores retirement community is one of the 39 best in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2012 Honor Roll, released Feb. 7.

Out of the 15,500 homes that the magazine reviewed, only 39 received four straight quarters of five-star ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in all three areas that the agency evaluates — health inspections, nurse staff and quality of care.  Those 39 nursing homes comprise the 2012 Honor Roll.

“Our continuing five-star performance reflects the commitment of each employee at our skilled nursing center,” says Anne Arakaki-Lock, Covenant Shores executive director.  “We’re proud to offer the very best to rehab patients and seniors in the Seattle area.”

Riverview Lutheran Care Center, Spokane, was the only other Washington nursing home on the 2012 U.S. News Honor Roll. For a full list, visit the magazine’s website:

Covenant Shores is a nationally accredited not-for-profit continuing care retirement community located at 9150 Fortuna Drive, Mercer Island, Wash.

It is administered by Covenant Retirement Communities Inc. on behalf of the Board of Benevolence of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
