Bishop Wicke Receives Top Honor from U.S. News & World Report

Bishop Wicke Health Center

Bishop Wicke Awarded "Best Nursing Home"Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center, located on the Wesley Village senior living campus, was named a Top Performing facility in U.S. News & World Report’s 2017-18 Best Nursing Homes ratings, available exclusively at


Of the more than 15,000 skilled nursing facilities that U.S. News rated, only 15% earned the Top Performing rating and status as “Best” nursing homes. The designation of Best Nursing Home is given only to those homes that demonstrate appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures.

Created by the publisher of Best Hospitals and Best Children’s Hospitals, the 2017-18 Best Nursing Homes ratings are the most comprehensive evaluation available of skilled nursing facilities in the U.S.

The U.S. News Nursing Home Finder offers comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for nearly every nursing home in the country. With this tool, individuals can easily conduct a customized search for a highly rated nursing home by location, distance, Medicare and Medicaid coverage and size.

Finding a nursing home that meets an individual's specific needs is a difficult decision that several million families across America face each year," says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News. “The Best Nursing Homes ratings, advice and tools were designed to help navigate this important life decision and make the process a little easier.”

Bishop Wicke offers short-term rehab and skilled nursing care in Shelton, including specialized programs for surgical recovery, orthopedics, cardiac and respiratory rehab, heart failure and more. The facility is located on the Wesley Village Campus at 584 Long Hill Avenue in Shelton and is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes (UMH), a local, not-for-profit organization.
