Phenix City, Alabama is a medium size city with 59,744 people. The city features only 2 nursing homes, which doesn't provide you with too many options. While this place didn't have a ton of nursing homes, this city received an excellent city grade of A-. In fact, this city's city grade far surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Columbus. This is especially impressive in light of the fact that we awarded those nursing homes in Columbus a city grade of B, which is actually a good grade in its own right. Lastly, Phenix City has the prestigious distinction of being the fourteenth best city in the state of Alabama according to our rankings.
This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Phenix City an elite grade of A for this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. We also wanted to emphasize that we awarded Phenix City a grade of A in our long-term care rating. Wrapping up its profile, the city earned an A for its nursing grade and a C in short-term care. Outside of its short-term care grade, this place's other three grades were remarkably strong.
