The Whittier Hospital Medical Center has been named one of the best in state for skilled nursing care.
The hospital’s 22-bed pediatric sub-acute care unit was ranked among the top nursing facilities in California in the sixth annual Best Nursing Home ratings by U.S. News & World Report, according to a hospital news release.
The hospital’s pediatric sub-acute unit serves long-term care patients who need 24-hour medical care. The rankings were based on Nursing Home Compare, a program managed by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The report showed that Whittier Hospital Medical Center’s nursing staff provides four times more personal attention per resident than the national average.
