Santé® of North Scottsdale and Santé of Chandler Receive Top Rating in Rehabilitation

Facility has an overall rating of 5 out of 5

U.S. News 2020-21 Best Nursing Home 5 Star ratings, recognizes Santé of North Scottsdale and Santé of Chandler short term rehab and skilled nursing facilities. Over 15,000 short-term rehab and skilled nursing facilities were evaluated to help find the best care for an individual. Both these facilities received a top rating of 5 Stars in rehabilitation along with a High Performing Short-Term Rehabilitation rating.

“Santé of North Scottsdale has always been about doing more and giving our best when people need it most,” said Timothy VonPahlen-Fedoroff Administrator at North Scottsdale. “Our physician-led therapy and clinical teams are some of the most dedicated and compassionate professionals in healthcare. We are honored to receive the U.S. News 5 Star award and High Performing Short-Term Rehabilitation rating and look forward to continuing to help individuals improve their health and regain their independence.”

The categories that were considered in the Short Term Rehabilitation Rating included:

  • Availability of registered nursing staff per resident per day.
  • Availability of physical rehabilitation therapist per residents per day.
  • Percentage of days where federal standards for registered nurse staffing hours were met.
  • Percentage of short term rehab patients who were appropriately given a timely flu vaccine.

“Sante of Chandler, has a culture that prides itself in never being satisfied and always looking for ways to improve the patient care experience,” says Lori Gudino an Administrator at Santé of Chandler. “When you think of healthcare you often think of the patient, but to us healthcare means so much more. Although the patient is why we are here to begin with, healthcare is a focus on the patient, their loved ones, and the professionals who work with them. At the end of the day, it is all about putting people first.  When you do that, everything else falls into place.”

Substantial data indicated that nurse staffing levels in short-term rehab and skilled nursing facilities correlate with successful resident outcomes, making it one of the most important structural measures for evaluating care. Registered nurse staffing, physical therapist staffing, and consistent nurse staffing levels are prioritized when evaluating a facility.

“US News tries to arm people with consumer information on many types of healthcare to try and help people to make the best educated decisions on all types of care,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News.

Outcome measures are derived by CMS from administrative claims data, patients returning home, hospitalizations and emergency room visits.
