The Columbia location of Lorien Health Services, an Ellicott City-based, family-owned nursing home, assisted living, rehabilitation and residential services company, placed 13th in Maryland on the inaugural ranking of Newsweek’s 2020 Best Nursing Homes list.
Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista Inc. to establish a ranking of Best Nursing Homes, analyzing more than 15,000 nursing homes across the country. The publication recognized award-winners in 20 states.
According to Newsweek, by 2030, the 65-and-older demographic will account for more than 20 percent of U.S. residents, and studies say that 70 percent of them will need some kind of long-term care. The oldest baby boomers are already in their 70s.
Lorien Health Services operates nursing home and assisted living facilities in Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard counties. The company also offers Lorien at Home and Lorien Rehabilitation and Fitness services as an extension of the communities.
Earlier this month, Lorien Health Services received the top award nationally from McKnight’s “Excellence in Technology Awards.” Lorien’s emphasis on quality care won the company Gold in the skilled care division of the annual competition. In 2019, Lorien was voted “Best Elder Care” company in The Baltimore Sun and “Best Assisted Living Facility” in The Daily Record. It was also named a “Health Care Hero” by The Daily Record for its advancements in nursing care.
