Press Releases


Elmwood FremontFremont, OH – Elmwood Skilled Nursing of Fremont has been named as one of the nation’s Best Nursing Homes for 2017-18 by U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in health care rankings. Only 15% of nursing homes in the United States achieved this outstanding ranking.

Elmwood Assisted Living & Skilled Nursing Fremont had opened their new, 30-suite, state-of-the art, skilled nursing and memory-care addition at the current senior living and healthcare campus on Fangboner Road in Fremont in October 2014. Since that time, Elmwood’s Skilled Nursing facility has repeatedly earned several 5-star ratings and rehabilitation therapy awards.

Kathy Hunt, owner and CEO of Elmwood Communities was excited to hear Elmwood of Fremont had earned such a prestigious, nationwide ranking. Hunt stated, “I am incredibly proud of all of our staff members at Elmwood.  They work very hard, each and every day to provide the best care and services to our very special clientele!”

Jean Smith, Elmwood Skilled Nursing of Fremont’s Administrator was also thrilled to hear the news and added, ““Our Elmwood staff is made up of quality individuals with compassionate hearts, and strive to earn this award every day.  Each and every department is deserving of this award.  They truly are an exceptional group!”

To qualify as a Best Nursing Home, all facilities had to earn an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 during 10 months of federal reports ending in August 2017.  They also must consistently meet performance standards set by U.S. News, such as earning at least a 4 in the CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) overall rating for all 10 months.  More than 15,000 nursing homes nationwide and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas were evaluated.

Elmwood Assisted Living & Skilled Nursing of Fremont is located at 1545 Fangboner Rd in Fremont, Ohio.
