Falcons Landing, a Life Plan Community in Potomac Falls Virginia, is proud to announce that The Johnson Center at Falcons Landing has been recognized as a Best Nursing Home in the 2020-2021 U.S. News World Report. The Johnson Center has been awarded the highest distinction from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - a Five Star High Performance rating for both Short-Term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care. This puts the Johnson Center in the top 5% of the 15,000 nursing homes in the U.S.
Falcons Landing was one of the first communities in Northern Virginia area to have a case of COVID-19 in a nursing resident and, in the early weeks of the subsequent outbreak, 6 residents succumbed to the disease. Employing rigorous infections control and containment measures, Falcons Landing’s outstanding health care team curtailed spread of the virus and the community was declared “outbreak free” by late July. To achieve recognition as one of the nation’s top performing nursing homes, in the middle of a pandemic, is testament to superb executive and clinical leadership and the very talented, dedicated nursing caregivers at The Johnson Center.
John Loop, MHA, LNHA, Director of Health Services says, “The recognition by U.S. News & World Report as a High Performing nursing home for both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care is an honor and validates the incredibly hard work the staff at The Johnson Center provides to our residents. The entire Falcons Family is very proud of our health care team’s accomplishment, and we applaud the exceptional quality of care they deliver and the meaningful relationships they forge with those they serve.”
Barb Brannon, Former CEO/President says “The Johnson Center at Falcons Landing has long been recognized for providing top quality care to our residents. This inclusion in this year’s U.S. News and World Report of the best nursing homes in the nation is extraordinary, especially given the challenges we have faced during this unprecedented pandemic crisis. Our team has adopted successful new strategies and methods of care delivery that have safeguarded residents’ health and welfare while continuing to foster independence and sense of family”.
