Teamwork Ensures Quality Healthcare
UC Health’s Daniel Drake Center for Post-Acute Care is ineligible for these particular U.S. News rankings. However, the facility was rated by U.S. News as a 2020-21 “Best Nursing Home” ranked as “high-performing” for short-term rehabilitation specifically for post-acute care patients seeking quality skilled nursing. Daniel Drake Center is part of the elite 21% of U.S. skilled nursing facilities to earn this recognition—compared against 15,000+ healthcare facilities in the nation.
Our high-performing procedures and conditions ratings are wonderful achievements. These successes were accomplished by our clinicians and employees working together as teams and always putting our patients at the center of all we do.
Continually recognized for excellence and backed by the academic strength of the University of Cincinnati, one of the nation’s top 25 public research universities, UC Health is revolutionizing how discovery-driven care is delivered.
Because UC Health trains one out of every three doctors in the region, we are the teachers others look to. We are the authors of healthcare’s greatest breakthroughs. And we are always showing the world how science can win. UC Health, In Science Lives Hope.
