MOUNT MORRIS – Pinecrest Manor has attained a top-tier ranking by U.S. News & World Report, achieving a “Best Nursing Home” status along with 34 other nursing homes in Northwest Illinois.

To create Best Nursing Homes 2014, U.S. News drew on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. The designation was awarded to facilities that earned the agency’s highest overall rating of five stars. Pinecrest consistently has been designated since May 2012.

Of nursing homes within a 25-mile radius, Pinecrest is the largest with 125 licensed beds.
