It provided roughly one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility.

On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation with 66.2 percent of its patients returning home.

This is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed.
