Lorien Assisted Living Tops The Daily Record’s 2022 Maryland Reader Rankings

Lorien Assisted Living Tops The Daily Record’s 2022 Maryland Reader Rankings

Marylanders rank Lorien communities as “Best Assisted Living Facility” and “Best Retirement Community.” Lorien also named “Best Health System.”

Ellicott City, M.d. (August 19, 2022) - We are honored to be ranked “best” in Maryland by The Daily Record (TDR) 2022 Reader Rankings. Tens of thousands of readers cast their votes and Lorien was named “Best Health System.”


In addition, the following Lorien communities were also recognized in in these categories:

·        Best Assisted Living: Lorien Bel Air, Encore, and Harmony Hall

·        Retirement Community:  Lorien Bel Air, Encore, and Taneytown


“The fact that two Lorien communities were named both Best Assisted Living and Best Retirement Community is a testament to the benefits of Lorien communities that provide both of these services under one roof,” says Lou Grimmel, CEO for Lorien Health Services. “Our innovative approach enables us to deliver integrated and individualized care that can be rapidly modified to meet evolving needs of each resident while minimizing disruptions in care as residents age.”


Lorien recently rebranded its assisted living services as a reflection of its renewed focus on this care and efforts to integrate it with other services like retirement communities. Lorien communities across Maryland offer a host of innovative care, including ventilator care, rehabilitation, physical therapy, dialysis, respite care, Parkinson’s wellness, Korean Senior Care, home care, telemedicine and more.


“Maryland is home to some of the top medical facilities, doctors and nurses in the country, so being selected by this community is extremely gratifying,” Grimmel continued. “All credit for this recognition is due to the exemplary work of our dedicated team. Their resolve continues to be tested, but they never waiver. Being included on this prestigious list again is a testament to their hard work during these unprecedented times.” 


This is the fourth year in a row that TDR readers have ranked Lorien or one of its communities as the best in the state.


The 2022 TDR Reader Rankings help celebrate and recognize the best in Maryland with readers nominating and voting for the businesses they think are the Best in Maryland. Thousands of businesses are nominated each year and tens of thousands of readers vote every year. Winners are chosen in a host of categories, including healthcare, education, law and legal services, business services, finance/accounting/insurance providers, technology, real estate and more.
