Topeka Presbyterian Manor named to U.S. News & World Report list of Best Nursing Homes

U.S. News and World Report has recognized Topeka Presbyterian Manor as a Best Nursing Home for 2024.

Topeka Presbyterian Manor earned its U.S. News Best Nursing Home status by achieving a rating of “High Performing,” the highest possible rating, for Short-Term Rehabilitation. U.S. News gives the designation of Best Nursing Home only to those that satisfy U.S. News’ assessment of consistent performance in quality measures. The Best Nursing Homes list was published November 14, 2023.

For the 2024 edition, U.S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on patient and resident outcomes. It analyzed data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other sources. The Short-Term Rehabilitation ratings are based on 10 quality measures including medical outcomes, staffing levels, and resident complaints.

At Topeka Presbyterian Manor, U.S. News evaluated the Post-Acute-to Home (PATH®) program for people recovering from a hospital stay such as after a stroke, heart attack, or surgery. The report found that:

• 0% of residents fell resulting in a major injury – as compared to 1.6% in Kansas.

• 13.8% of residents were rehospitalized during their stay, a much lower percentage when compared to 21.9% in Kansas and 22.5% nationally.

• 5.7% of residents visited the ER during their stay at Topeka Presbyterian Manor as opposed to 12% in Kansas and nationally.

Topeka Presbyterian Manor can serve up to 68 residents in the health center, offering both short-term rehab and long-term care. The community also offers independent living and assisted living.

In addition to Topeka Presbyterian Manor, two other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) communities were also recognized for their short-term rehab: Lawrence Presbyterian Manor and Manor of the Plains in Dodge City.

U.S. News and World Report has been rating nursing homes annually since 2009. To learn more about their rating system, visit their FAQ page.
