Best nursing home: Altenheim Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center has recently been notified that it has achieved US News & World Report’s highest rating as a high-performing Best Nursing Home for 2018-2019. This distinction was achieved by attaining the publication’s new, even more stringent requirements, which focus on quality of care and staffing levels.

These new guidelines are described in the McKnight article McKnight’s Long-Term Care News. As a result, Altenheim is authorized to display the US News and World Report Best Nursing Home icon throughout 2019.

Less than 19 percent of all nursing facilities in the country are awarded this distinction. The Board of Directors, management and Altenheim’s medical directors, Drs. Dohar and Munjapara, extend sincere thanks to each and every Altenheim staff member and volunteer. Their outstanding efforts have made this accomplishment possible.

Altenheim Senior Living is located at 18627 Shurmer Road, Strongsville.
