Regina Health Center has been named one of the best nursing homes in the country by U.S. News & World Report. The center has also maintained the highest Five-Star Quality Rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which is a rating only 14 percent of all nursing homes in Ohio received. Both recognitions underscore Regina Health Center’s commitment to being a high-quality provider of compassionate and holistic health care services for religious and lay people needing short-term rehabilitation, assisted living, respite care or residential nursing care.
To compile its “Best Nursing Homes” ratings, U.S. News collected meaningful data and ratings about more than 15,000 nursing facilities and compiled it into a searchable online database that includes information about safety, health inspections, staffing and more. The “Best Nursing Homes” report is available at health.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes.
The CMS also gave Regina Health Center the highest Five-Star Quality Rating, which is the most respected rating a nursing home can receive. The CMS rating system helps consumers, their families and caregivers compare nursing homes by assessing three key areas related to quality of care for nursing home residents—state health inspections, quality outcome measures and staffing levels.

“Regina Health Center has been providing the highest quality, faith-based care for 20 years. We are honored to be recognized for providing such quality care by U.S. News as a ‘Best Nursing Home’ and by the CMS for maintaining the highest Five-Star Quality Rating,” said Regina Health Center Executive Director Brian Flannery. “Both recognitions place us in the top tier of nursing homes around the country and objectively demonstrate the superior quality of care our residents receive from our employees and volunteers.”
In addition, Regina Health Center continues to receive high family satisfaction scores through Ohio Department of Aging surveys. In 2012, Regina Health Center’s overall family satisfaction score was 93.3 compared to a state average of 85.6, which ranked the facility 32nd among 948 Ohio facilities, and the highest of any facility in Summit County.
