NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- -

Tennessee State Veterans homes in Knoxville and Murfreesboro have been ranked among the best in the country.

U.S. News and World Report rated more than 16,000 nursing homes using data research on nursing home safety, health inspection and staffing.

The source of the data originates from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

In 2013, CMS issued five star ratings to the Senator Ben Atchley State Veterans Home in Knoxville and the Tennessee State Veterans Home in Murfreesboro.

This is the third year for the distinction for the home in Murfreesboro and the second for the home in Knoxville.
