U.S. News & World Report Recognizes Scandia Village

U.S. News & World Report, a leader in rating and assessing different services across the country, has identified Good Samaritan Society – Scandia Village as a high performing facility in short-term care, a new category created by U.S. News this year.

U.S. News analyzes data from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine a facility’s rating. For its new short-term category, U.S. News rates a facility’s quality of care for patients who stay less than 100 hundred days across nine quality measures. Factors include staffing levels, rate of hospital readmissions, complaints and the amount and quality of physical rehabilitative care.

“We are very honored and blessed to receive this distinction,” said administrator Michele Notz. “We always want and strive for the best for our residents for whatever level of care they might need.”

In the late 1970s, northern Door County community leaders realized the need for senior care in this area. The first resident was admitted into the Care Center in 1981 and the campus has steadily grown over the years, now serving more than 150 residents. For more information visit
