U.S. News & World Report Names Wesley Towers Among Best in Kansas

Hutchinson, KS 11/30/2023 – Wesley Towers was recently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Nursing Home for 2024 – a status earned by only 19% of skilled-nursing facilities nationwide. Since 2009, U.S. News’ annual Best Nursing Homes ratings have assisted consumers in need of either short-term rehabilitation or long-term care for themselves or a family member.

Wesley Towers earned its U.S. News Best Nursing Home status by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating, for Short-Term Rehabilitation, Long-Term Care. U.S. News awards the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those that satisfy U.S. News’ assessment of consistent performance in objective quality measures.

We are very proud of the Best of the Best recognition from US News and World Report. The award highlights our efforts to provide outstanding care and services every day for our residents. We truly have excellent employees, clinical managers, therapy services, medical direction, and an outstanding pharmacy partner and the hard work of all of these people is being what is being honored by US News. Our Director of Nursing, Michelle Gifford, has championed quality since her arrival at Wesley Towers and our 5-Star rating with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services and now this award is testament to her tireless efforts. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the team at Wesley Towers.
