BRIGHTON, N.Y. (WROC) — Newsweek has named The Friendly Home in Brighton the no. 1 nursing home in New York State on its America’s Best Nursing Homes 2022 list.
A total of 450 nursing homes made the national list. Jewish Home of Rochester came in at no. 8, with Fairport Baptist Homes, Thompson Health – M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center, and St. John’s Home ranking 18th, 36th, and 53rd, respectively.
“As the challenges of the COVID-19 global pandemic continue, this amazing achievement reflects our
staff’s hard work and dedication to serving residents with excellence and compassion every day,” Friendly Senior Living President & CEO Glen Cooper said, in a statement issued Thursday. “We offer them our sincere and heartfelt congratulations and gratitude.”
