Catholic Health's St. Catherine of Siena Nursing & Rehabilitation has once again been ranked as one of the top skilled nursing facilities in the country by Newsweek. For the fifth consecutive year, the Smithtown facility was listed on its “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024” report. In addition to being rated as one of the nation’s top care centers, St. Catherine of Siena Nursing and Rehabilitation was ranked as the 8th best facility in New York State.
"This recognition is a true testament to our incredibly talented and caring staff at St. Catherine and their continued excellence in keeping our residents safe and healthy," said St. Catherine of Siena Nursing & Rehabilitation Administrator John Chowske. "We always strive to provide the best possible quality and compassionate care to our residents and their families."
The Newsweek rankings identify top nursing homes based on different criteria, including performance data, peer recommendations, management of COVID-19 and accreditations from The Joint Commission and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. For the first time, resident satisfaction data for nursing homes, based on National Safety Goals from the Joint Commission and Google scores, was added to the scoring model. This year's list included 750 nursing facilities.
“I would like to congratulate John and his team on this incredible honor and their continued commitment to excellence,” said Catholic Health Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Dennis Verzi, DPT, MHA,
FACHCA. “To be ranked among the top facilities in the country reflects Catholic Health’s mission of providing Long Islanders with the highest level of care.”
