Transitioning to a nursing home can be a difficult experience for many aging adults. They’re often afraid of losing their home, independence or even their sense of self. At Oakbrook Health we understand these concerns. That’s why individual dignity, development and safety are our top concerns. When a loved one needs long-term care that requires ongoing skilled nursing oversight, we are committed to helping their stay feel as much like home as possible.
We’re honored to be among the top 19 percent of U.S. skilled nursing facilities recognized as high performing in long-term care by U.S. News & World Report—the global authority in health care rankings.
To determine award recipients, U.S. News conducts an in-depth analysis of publicly available data determined to most greatly impact patient and resident care, safety and outcomes for more than 13,000 nursing homes nationwide. Ratings include data on staffing, success in preventing ER visits and pneumonia vaccination rates, among other metrics. Out of 13,685 nursing homes that received a long-term care rating, just 2,250 were designated as high performing.
One of the most important, most reliable and most heavily weighted quality measures available, according to the U.S. News methodology, is how often long-term residents require hospital care. At Oakbrook Health, we have measures in place to prevent avoidable hospitalizations. As a result, we are proud to be well below the state and national averages for the number of hospitalizations per one thousand resident days.
It’s our mission to improve the lives of the residents we serve. We commit our skills and resources to the benefit of the whole person by providing high-quality health care, while addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals and their families.
