This plaque, showing the Saratoga Care Center as among the best in Wyoming, hangs just inside the entrance to the facility.

The Saratoga Care Center was recently listed in U.S. News and World Report Nursing Home Finder as one of the top nursing homes in Wyoming for 2018-2019.

The ranking is based on a data-driven methodology that journalists at the U.S. News and World Report developed to evaluate nursing homes. The U.S. News ratings for nursing homes rely on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that determines and enforces nursing home standards. U.S. News assigned an overall rating to nursing homes based on their CMS-assigned star ratings in three categories: state-conducted health inspections, nurse staffing and medical quality measures.

Of the award, Saratoga Care Center Administrator Mark Pesognelli said, "It is a great accomplishment. I have a really solid staff up there that are very well qualified and have a deep sense of caring for the residents."
