Life Care Center of Tucson, Arizona, was recently named a 2020 Best Nursing Home by Newsweek magazine.
With the aging Baby Boomer population, Newsweek compiled a list based on data from Statista Inc., a worldwide data research firm.
“We analyzed over 15,000 nursing homes in the U.S. and have recognized award winners in 20 states,” Nancy Cooper, global editor in chief, said in a letter placed on the Newsweek website.
Four hundred and six skilled nursing centers made the Best Nursing Homes list, including eight in Arizona. Life Care Center of Tucson ranked second in the state.
Statista determined the Best Nursing Homes based on a combination of survey results from medical experts and data on staffing, health inspections and quality measures from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as of July 2019.
“It is an honor to be named second in the state of Arizona, especially by such a prestigious publication as Newsweek,” said Cody Bell, executive director at the center. “Our team is proud of the loving service they provide, and this award simply reflects their dedication.”
