U.S. News & World Report gives The Lighthouse a 5-star rating

(OMAHA, NE) The Lighthouse Healthcare Residences at Lakeside Village has been named as one of the best nursing homes in Nebraska, receiving five out of a possible five stars from U.S. News & World Report. The publication released its annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, which offer important guidance to families and healthcare providers caring for people in need of a nursing home.

The Lighthouse, located in Omaha near Alegent Health Lakeside Hospital, offers skilled, long-term care and short-term rehabilitation, but is not like any nursing homes you've seen in the past. It is transforming long-term care for seniors and their families. A relationship between Immanuel Communities and Alegent Health, The Lighthouse is an innovative healthcare residence for seniors who are looking for more than a traditional nursing home.

"We have an incredible team that is committed to high-quality care," said Diane Peck, operations director of The Lighthouse. "What makes a house a home are the people. Our staff truly cares about the residents. Our residents come first and that's what this rating shows."

U.S. News & World Report's evaluation of nursing homes is based on data from Nursing Home Compare, a consumer website run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The government agency sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. Homes earn an overall rating of one to five stars, as well as up to five stars in each of three underlying categories: health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of care.
