Senior living community wins U.S. News & World Report award

DOWNERS GROVE - Oak Trace senior living community's Health & Wellness Center in Downers Grove has been named among the Best Nursing Homes by U.S. News & World Report for 2022-2023. Oak Trace earned the prestigious 'high performance' status for short-term rehab care, making it among the nation's top 16% of nursing homes.

Oak Trace senior living community provides engaging independent living. As a Life Plan Community, it also offers assisted living, memory care, short-term rehab and long-term skilled care at its Health & Wellness Center on the same campus.

U.S. News & World Report evaluated over 15,000 communities in their search for the best overall outcomes and care. Ratings are based on their assessment of multiple quality measures, safety, staffing, medical outcomes, resident complaints, and processes of care, such as vaccinations and appropriate use of some medications.

This is the 13th year in which the evaluation has been done by U.S. News and World Report. The short-term rehab category was introduced in 2018 to help provide more insight into the services available for patients requiring additional care before returning to their home after hospitalization, surgery, a stroke, illness, or an accident.

"We have an extremely dedicated and professional team," said Courtney Karl, administrator for Oak Trace. "Every day, we work hard to provide exceptional care, and we are proud that our efforts are officially recognized by this prestigious designation by U.S. News and World Report."
