Along with Linden Woods Village, 2,300 other senior living communities were named by U.S. News & World Report as the top care providers in the country for 2017-18. The “Nursing Home Finder,” released by U.S. News & World Report, evaluated more than 15,000 nursing homes across the country to come up with the list of homes designated as the best.
U.S. News says nursing home performance was evaluated over time, averaging monthly data over a year and much emphasis was placed on strong performance in medical quality measures. To receive a high U.S. News rating, homes had to provide significantly more than the required minimum of rehabilitation therapy. All rated homes accept residents covered by Medicaid, Medicare or both. (You can read more about how U.S. News rates nursing homes here.)
Completion of the $28.2-million Linden Woods Village in Gladstone has brought 78 new jobs to the area. Located along 72nd Street in Gladstone, this continuing care retirement community provides seniors a secure environment where they can enjoy independent living, assisted living or benefit from health care during a recovery or a long-term stay. Since its grand opening, the facility offers 120 units, restaurant-style dining, a coffee bar, craft rooms, chapel, game room, library, spa room, on-site banking and a fitness center.
The general contractor for the project was HDC Development Companies LLC with architect Ron Reid Associates. The project engineer was Lutjen, Inc. Green Belt Bank & Trust, and First Bank of Missouri provided financing.
