With 32,560 people, Ridgecrest, California is a relatively small city. Unfortunately, there is only one nursing home there. We were relieved to discover that, this place's only nursing home received a superb grade of A-, so at least there is one quality option. This city is one of the 500 best cities in the entire nation.

Wrapping up its profile, we gave the city grades of A- and B- for our inspections and long-term care categories respectively. Outside of its long-term care score, this place's three other categories were remarkably strong.
