U.S. News and World Report Ranking 2022-2023

Saint Luke’s Bishop Spencer Place earned the Best Nursing Homes award from the U.S. News and World Report for our Short-Term Rehabilitation in York Place. This rating evaluates the quality of post-acute care for patients recovering from a hospital stay such as after stroke, heart attack, infection, or accidental injury.

Saint Luke’s Bishop Spencer Place is proud of our employees and the hard work they provide that earned us this award. Our community wouldn’t be ranked best in U.S. News and World Report if it weren’t for our staff.


Love Reunited at Bishop Spencer Place

Phil and Jeanne met at a car dealership each looking for a new vehicle – what they found was 26 years of marriage, raising kids, exploring the world, and sticking by each other’s side in sickness and in health.
A few months after Jeanne retired at 65, she experienced a stroke in St. Louis. Jeanne’s two daughters were grateful to find a home for the couple at Saint Luke’s Bishop Spencer Place here in Kansas City.
Bishop Spencer Place gives Jeanne and Phil the comfort of living in the same community that can provide the skilled care Jeanne needs, the independence Phil still enjoys, and the peace of mind their girls appreciate.
This darling and dedicated couple enjoys meals, entertainment, family, holidays, friends, physical therapy, and so much more together here at Bishop Spencer Place. They enjoy riding the resident bus to the Plaza and love getting lunch and shopping together.
Most of all, they are so happy to continue loving each other and are excited to celebrate their bond this Valentine’s Day. ❤️
We caught up with the beautiful couple and their daughter Christy to capture their love story and oh so glad we did. Jeanne’s advice for young love? “Keep it simple.” We couldn’t agree more. Thanks for sharing your love story with us!
