There are two facilities in Tempe, Arizona, so at least you have a few options. The nursing homes here received an excellent city grade of A. Even with a relatively limited selection of facilities, this is still quite an achievement. Tempe has the distinction of being the number one rated city in Arizona. Finally, this city's category grades were every bit as strong as its city grade. You can find more information about these in the next paragraph.
In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this city really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Very few cities earned a better grade in this area. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, the city performed remarkably well in terms of its long-term care grade as well. Consequently, we awarded it an A in that category. Rounding out its straight A profile, we gave Tempe an A- for its short-term care grade and a grade of A- in nursing.
