Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

CentraCare – St. Benedict’s Community was listed as one of the nation’s top-performing facilities in Newsweek's America's Best Nursing Homes in 2022, ranking second overall in Minnesota.

“This designation is extraordinary. It is not only a time of appreciation but of celebration. It reinforces our teamwork, dedication to our patients and families and our reputation for high-quality, patient centered care,” said Susan Kratzke, Care Center Administrator.

Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista to create an annual ranking of America's Best Nursing Homes. Survey data was taken in 25 states that have the highest population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Out of the nearly 12,000 nursing homes that were analyzed, the nation’s top-performing 450 facilities were awarded with a rank in their own state, resulting in 25 individual lists that are published by Newsweek.

Ranking was based on three critical criteria: overall performance data, peer recommendations and each facility’s handling of COVID-19, relative to in-state competition.

“To be listed as one of the nation’s top-performing facilities, ranking second overall in Minnesota is a testament to our amazing staff,” said St. Benedict’s Community Director of Nursing Joylena Kardell.
