More information about its category grades is available in the next paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed extremely well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. With a short-term care grade of this caliber we'd expect many of the facilities in Encinitas to a high functioning physical therapy and rehabilitation program.
