Ann's Choice is one of 7 Erickson Living-managed communities nationwide selected by U.S. News & World Report for this honor.

Since its inception in 2009, the U.S. News nursing home ratings have relied on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. This year, due to CMS' recent move from a self-reported to a payroll-based nurse staffing reporting and a freeze in health inspection data since November 2017, U.S. News modified the way it uses CMS data for evaluating a nursing home's overall performance.
Ann's Choice continuing care neighborhood offers personal care, long-term care, short-term rehabilitation, and more.

Construction of Chestnut Pointe is part of Ann's Choice multi-year plan to expand and renovate its existing continuing care residences, along with amenity spaces. When the multi-year project is complete, Ann's Choice will have a total of 61 assisted living apartment-homes, 44 memory care residences, and 88 skilled nursing residences.
