The nursing homes in this city received an excellent city grade of A-. Even with just a few facilities, this is still quite an achievement. We were so impressed with this city that we ranked it as one of the ten highest rated cities in the state of Arizona. This city's report card is also consistent as it didn't receive a single poor category grade either. You can find more information about these in the next section.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of the city's nursing homes received nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave Surprise an elite grade of A in this area. These inspection ratings 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 emphasize that we awarded Surprise an A for our short-term care category. Wrapping up its impressive profile, this place earned a B+ for long-term care and a grade of B in the area of nursing. This city really didn't have any weak links based on our assessment.
