An Honor for Our Valued Partner

Good Samaritan Society-Spokane Valley, a valued partner of Infinity Rehab, was recently named one of the top nursing homes in the country based on a rating system administered by U.S. News & World Report.  Additionally, the community was recognized in the top five percent for short-term care.

“We are very honored and blessed to receive this distinction,” Administrator Stephen Collette says. “We always want and strive for the best for our residents for whatever level of care they might need.”

“I was thrilled to hear the news,” noted JoLynn Munro, Division President for Infinity Rehab. “They are an outstanding community, displaying a high level of care for their residents. This recognition is certainly well-deserved.”

How A Home is Chosen

U.S. News uses data from the Five-Star Quality Rating System created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for its rating. While CMS bases its overall rating on health inspections, U.S. News bases its overall ratings on staffing. To be considered a Best Nursing Home, a facility must have a high-performance rating either overall or for short-term stays (if eligible) and not be below average for the other. Good Samaritan Society-Spokane Valley has received a high-performance rating both overall and for its short-term care, making it among the top 25 percent of the best nursing homes.
