Gulf Coast Village has earned the title as one of the Best Skilled Nursing Facilities in Florida from US News & World Report for 2021-2022 for both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. Only 65 facilities earned this title in Florida for 2021-2022, based on performance.

The data used to evaluate nursing facilities nationwide comes from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) and includes metrics of nurse staffing, COVID-19 staff vaccination rates, patient outcomes, facility complaints, patient safety and rehabilitation therapy.

For short-term rehabilitation, a facility’s quality of care for patients recovering from a hospital stay after a stroke, heart attack, infection or accidental injury is evaluated.

Long-Term care evaluation includes a facility’s ability to care for residents who need daily help with medical needs that can include administering medications and non-medical needs such as dressing, eating and using the bathroom.

“Our team works hard every day to provide the highest level of care for both our short-term and long-term residents,” said Greg Anderson, executive director of Gulf Coast Village. “The honor of being named as best nursing facility for both of those categories by US News & World Report is representative of our dedicated staff and our commitment here at Gulf Coast Village to patient care and safety.”
