Norwalk Memorial Home was recently named to U.S. News and World Report’s list of Best Nursing Homes for 2021. Only 15 percent of nursing homes in the U.S. make this list.

“We are honored to make the 2021-22 list of Best Nursing Homes,” said Dr. Brent Burkey, president & CEO of Fisher-Titus. “We have a legacy of providing exceptional care for older adults in our community at Norwalk Memorial Home. This award is a reflection of this dedicated service our staff provides our seniors.”

All Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing homes that were part of the July 2021 CMS nursing home provider census made available in July 2021 were evaluated by U.S. News. To be recognized as one of the 2021-22 U.S. News Best Nursing Homes, a facility must have been “high performing” in short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, or both.

Ratings are based on U.S. News’ assessment of quality measures focusing on staffing, medical outcomes, resident complaints, processes of care, and more. All data used in the ratings came directly from publicly available sources including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
