Picnic on the Patio

The rain didn’t keep area residents from enjoying Picnic on the Patio at Westview Care Center in Britt on Thursday, July 19. The event, which was open to the public, was held from noon to 1 p.m. Westview staff served hamburgers, pulled pork sandwiches, chips, baked beans, a variety of salads, and cookies, cheesecake and chocolate cake.

BRITT | Westview Care Center of Britt has been named to the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Nursing Homes in Iowa list for 2018.

Westview is one of 16 ABCM Corporation care facilities across the state to make the list. 

Other area nursing homes on the list are Concord Care Center in Garner, another ABCM facility; and Titonka Care Center in Titonka. 

U.S. News displays data about nearly every care center in the United States, updating the information every quarter and using it to rate and rank the homes.

As reported in the news magazine, out of 439 licensed nursing homes in Iowa, only 80 Iowa care centers received the highest possible rating.

To qualify as a Best Nursing Home, facilities had to earn an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 during 10 months of federal reports ending in August 2018 and consistently meet performance standards set by U.S. News, according to the magazine's website.
