OAKLAND, N.J. (Feb. 15, 2023) — Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center has been named one of the nation’s “Best Nursing Homes 2022-23” by U.S. News & World Report. The 215-bed skilled nursing facility, located at 20 Breakneck Road in Oakland, provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.
“This honor is a testament to the excellent work being done by Oakland’s care team members and the facility’s ongoing effort to provide high-quality clinical services in a modern environment,” said Ugochi Opara, regional director of market development for Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Oakland. “The U.S. News Best Nursing Homes program provides one of our industry’s most sought-after distinctions, one that consumers and business partners alike recognize for its credibility.”
Oakland received its U.S. News high-performance rating for long-term care. The skilled nursing facility previously earned a best rating in 2018. Additionally, last fall, Oakland was included among Newsweek’s “America's Best Nursing Homes 2023.”
Oakland maintains five-star CMS overall and quality measures ratings. Additionally, the center offers physician-led specialty care programs, including Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and offers a Chronic Illness Support model that integrates palliative care, pastoral support and other services with these programs. Beyond its clinical offerings, Oakland is committed to serving as a healthcare resource for the community. To that end, the facility’s library of physician-curated content addresses many topics of interest; it can be found at oaklandrehabhc.com.
This marks the 13th year U.S. News & World Report has released its Best Nursing Homes ratings. The highly respected program evaluates more than 15,000 nursing homes across the country based on care, safety, health inspections and staffing.
