Parsons PMMA on U.S. News and World Report Best Nursing Home 2017-18 list

Parsons Presbyterian Manor is on the U.S. News and World Report Best Nursing Homes 2017-18 list. The senior living community received the highest score of a five-star rating system to make the list, available today at

The U.S. News and World Report list uses information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the government agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. CMS assigns one to five stars to each community for how well it performs in health inspections, nurse staffing and level of quality care.

“Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America employees continue to focus their efforts on delivering quality caring every day,” said PMMA President and CEO Bruce Shogren. “The five-star ratings confirm their good work.”

This is second time in three years, and the fourth time since 2011 that Parsons has appeared on the US News and World Report Best Nursing Homes list.

Survey teams from the state conduct inspections in each community every 12 to 15 months. The surveys cover a checklist of about 180 items such as medication management, food preparation and delivery, proper paperwork, and resident enrichment activities.

In addition to Parsons Presbyterian Manor, seven PMMA locations are on the honoree list with five-star ratings: Arkansas City, Emporia, Lawrence, Newton and Sterling in Kansas, and Farmington and Fulton in Missouri.
