Tennessee state veterans homes among best in U.S.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.(WVLT)-- U.S. News & World Report 2013 has named the Tennessee State Veterans Homes in Knoxville and Murfreesboro among the best in the country.

U.S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on safety, health inspection and staffing. The source of the data originates from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In 2012, CMS issued five star ratings to the Ben Atchley State Veterans’ Home in Knoxville and the Tennessee State Veterans’ Home in Murfreesboro.

“We are so proud of the continued recognition Tennessee’s State Veterans Homes are receiving for their commitment to excellence in serving our Veterans,” Many-Bears Grinder said. “We look forward to seeing this network of State Veterans Homes grow while continuing to be an example to the rest of the country.”

“Staff at each of the three Tennessee State Veterans Homes are committed to caring for our residents with respect and dignity,” TSVH Board President Mary Ross said. “We believe the W.D. “Bill” Manning Tennessee State Veterans Home will soon receive the same distinction due to the continued strides to improve.
