"Achieving this recognition further reaffirms our dedication to providing outstanding care and service to our residents," said Karen Boyce, Director of Continuing Care at Greenspring.  "Our team of skilled health professionals works in partnership to deliver the best possible individualized care each and every day."  

The U.S. News annual report recognizes those communities that have recently earned the highest overall rating of five stars from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), an assessment based on a variety of categories including health inspections and quality of care, among others. 

"Managing the cost and care of an elderly loved one is a challenge millions of Americans face each year," says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News. "We hope our Best Nursing Homes ratings, advice, and tools help them make this important decision."
