Two Columbine nursing homes ranked among nation’s best

FORT COLLINS – Two skilled nursing homes in Fort Collins that are run by Columbine Health Systems are among those ranked as among the nation’s top 750 such facilities in Newsweek’s America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024.

A total of 12,273 nursing homes were analyzed nationwide, including all such facilities in Colorado. Of those, Newsweek selected five Colorado nursing homes to be among its 750 best. Columbine West Health and Rehab, 940 Worthington Circle, placed second and Lemay Avenue Health and Rehab, 4824 S. Lemay Ave., was fourth. The other three Colorado nursing homes Newsweek listed are in Aurora.

The rankings are based on performance data, peer recommendations, management of issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, resident satisfaction and accreditations. Newsweek utilized the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data, which this year awarded all four Columbine facilities an overall 5-star rating, to determine the performance of nursing homes.
