Mesa, Arizona is a large metropolitan area with 478,404 people. The city features just 4 nursing homes, which is not as many as we expected in a city of this size. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a superb city grade of A-. Even with a limited selection of nursing homes, this is still quite an accomplishment. In fact, this place's city grade was far better than the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Goodyear. While there is nothing wrong with this grade, we found Mesa to be in a totally different league. Finally, Mesa has the prestigious distinction of being one of the top ten rated cities in the state of Arizona.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, the nursing homes in Mesa performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded its facilities an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We also wanted to point out that we awarded the city an A- in our short-term care rating. Rounding out its strong report card, the city received a B+ for its long-term care grade and a B+ for nursing. This place didn't have any weak links as far as we could tell.
