America's Best Nursing Homes 2021


Choosing a nursing home for an aging family member has always been a heavy responsibility. As the COVID-19 pandemic showed with heartbreaking clarity, it can even be a matter of life and death.

That's why Newsweek once again partnered with respected global data research firm Statista to establish a ranking of Best Nursing Homes, providing information and insights to help our readers understand their options at a very challenging time.

America's Best Nursing Homes 2021 highlights the nation's top nursing homes (compared to others in the same state) based on performance data, peer recommendations and the facility's handling of the COVID-19 threat. In building these rankings, Statista and Newsweek took extensive, multiple measures to address the impact of the outbreak. Our objective: to recognize the facilities which have put in place the best possible responses and protocols.

Our ranking identifies the 400 top facilities across 20 states. If you need to choose a place for a loved one, we hope this list of Best Nursing Homes 2021 will help make that decision easier and the burden, lighter.

Methodology
This ranking is based on three data sources: Performance data, peer recommendations and the facility's handling of COVID-19. The 400 best out of 10,647 Nursing Homes in the 20 most populous states were awarded by Newsweek and Statista, resulting in a varying number of nursing homes awarded per state: New York had the most nursing homes awarded with 70, while North Carolina and Massachusetts are represented with 5 nursing homes each.

The data analysis put a big emphasis on evaluating the official COVID-19 dataset from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The Nursing Home COVID-19 data is reported directly to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) and includes Resident Impact, Facility Capacity, Staff & Personnel and Supplies & Personal Protective Equipment, as well as Ventilator Capacity.

This data was updated weekly. For this ranking, it reflects the current situation from May 24th, 2020 until August 2nd, 2020.
