Buckner Westminster Place Earns National Recognition


U.S.wes wells with plague News & World Report awarded two of Buckner’s Green House homes in Longview, Texas with a four-star rating in its annual Best Nursing Homes issue.  Congratulations to all!  The magazine rated almost 16, 000 nursing homes across the country.  The ratings are awarded by looking at the data collected in the homes.

Administrator and Guide for the Buckner homes, Wes Wells, explained that the rating was the result of a number of resident surveys.  “(U.S. News & World Report) didn’t come out here and look at us,” Wells said. “They looked at our measurements based on assessments that we have to turn in.”
