Radford Green Health Center at Sedgebrook Among The Very Best

"At Radford Green, we take great pride in the services that we offer to our residents. A high level of quality care and compassion are at the focal point of all we do here in our Health Center," said Keegan Sawyer, administrator for Radford Green Health Center at Sedgebrook.

Radford Green Health has been reported as one of the best nursing homes in the country by U.S. News and World Report. This prestigious honor is awarded to only the top nursing homes, providing high quality and attentive care.

Sedgebrook is a leading Chicago-area retirement community offering independent living. Radford Green Health Center at Sedgebrook provides assisted living, memory support, skilled care and short and long-term rehabilitation services, thus completing the community's complete continuum of care.

U.S. News and World Report acknowledges the important role of nursing homes in society, reporting, "On any given morning this year, roughly 1.4 million individuals, including 1 in 10 individuals ages 85 and above, will wake up in a U.S. nursing home. We want to help families find a good and caring facility."

The nursing home ratings rely on data from Nursing Home Compare (, a program run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. CMS rates nursing homes between one and five stars based on their performance in state-conducted health inspections, nurse staffing, and medical quality measures. Radford Green has earned the prestigious five-star rating for the past eight years consecutively.

More than 15,000 nursing homes were evaluated by U.S. News and World Report for 2017-2018. Of those, only 2,286 nationwide, which is less than 16%, earned the best nursing home recognition.

"Our success is directly correlated with the outstanding staff that serves our residents here each and every day. It is their dedicated service and continuous focus on each individual's person-centered care that makes us the community that we are today," said Sawyer. "We at Radford Green are thrilled to be named one of the top performing nursing homes by U.S. News and World Report and will surely be striving for the same honor in the future."
