GLOUCESTER, Va. (Nov. 13, 2023) – Walter Reed Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Gloucester, a Virginia Health Services (VHS) entity, has been recognized on Newsweek’s America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024 list. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on September 27, 2023, and can currently be viewed on the Newsweek’s website.

This is the second straight year Walter Reed has earned the Newsweek honor. Walter Reed opened in 1981 in its current location and is one of seven nursing and rehabilitation centers under the VHS umbrella, which also includes home care, hospice, assisted and independent living, along with rehabilitation and pharmacy services. Walter Reed offers skilled and long-term nursing care in addition to Memory Care units for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

The America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024 ranking lists the nation’s leading nursing homes in the 25 states with the highest number of facilities according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The evaluation is based on five data sources:

  • CMS Data used to determine the performance of nursing homes.
  • National Online Survey of thousands of medical professionals.
  • Management of the Covid-19 situation.
  • Resident Satisfaction Data.
