Best Skilled Nursing Service in Florida: Newsweek Ranks Majestic Oaks # 1

| Health & Wellness, John Knox News

In a state with 691 licensed nursing homes, Majestic Oaks at John Knox Village of Central Florida stands apart as the #1 skilled nursing service, but also as one of the best Life Plan Communities. Recognized on Newsweek’s list of Best Nursing Homes in 2024, this achievement reflects our unwavering commitment to exceptional care, ensuring residents experience the highest standard of living.

Making it into Newsweek’s top rankings is distinction not easily earned. Only single branches with a minimum of 100 certified beds were considered. Each facility had to meet stringent pre-defined criteria, a process determined through the compilation of five sets of data. Newsweek assesses various factors, including performance metrics, peer endorsements, COVID-19 management and accreditations from respected bodies like The Joint Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The scoring model now integrates resident satisfaction data derived from The Joint Commission’s National Safety Goals and Google quality scores.

Receiving the # 1 spot in Florida is a humbling acknowledgment, especially considering the thorough evaluation process. Notably, John Knox Village of Central Florida has earned a top placement on the list twice before and tied for the # 2 spot nationwide.

What sets Majestic Oaks apart is our dedication to consistency and familiarity. With a full-time nurse practitioner exclusively devoted to residents, our care is both reliable and tailored to individual needs, thanks to our partnering doctors who go above and beyond.

What makes us unique aside from our skilled nursing services is our not-for-profit status. In a field where 71% of U.S. nursing homes are for-profit, we stand as a beacon of dedication to resident wellness. This commitment to resident wellness, coupled with our financial strength, ensures our residents have peace of mind, especially during challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nicole Vega, our director of clinical services, credits the support that LeadingAge Florida and the Florida Health Care Association provided during the pandemic. According to Nicole, “Their teams provided a direct connection to regulators and helped decipher the enormous amount of information coming out daily.”
