The Skilled Nursing and Transitional Care Units at the CoxHealth Meyer Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Hospital have been named a best nursing home in Missouri by U.S. News & World Report magazine.
The ranking is based on ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for overall performance in health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of medical care. Of the 81 nursing homes in southwest Missouri, 18, including CoxHealth, received an overall five star rating, qualifying them for this recognition.
Transitional care units and skilled nursing units provide nursing and rehabilitation care to patients who are recovering from illness or injury and are not yet able to return home. To see the ranking and learn more, visit http://health.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes/area/mo/cox-medical-center-265289.
