With 209,844 people, Santa Rosa, California is relatively large city. Surprisingly, there are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which is not as many as we expected in a city of this size. This city's nursing homes received a strong city grade of B+, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for by having high quality nursing homes. By way of comparison, we gave the facilities in the local city of Pleasant Hill a city grade of B, which is also an impressive grade. However, we found the facilities in Santa Rosa to be a slightly better option on average than the ones in Pleasant Hill. This city's strong report card was highlighted by its nursing homes' nursing scores, which we will address in the next section.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed remarkably well in nursing. In fact, we awarded Santa Rosa a grade of A for this category, which is one of our best scores. High end scores in this category generally mean a city's facilities have high nurse staffing levels. In addition, we also awarded this city an A in our short-term care category. Finally, this place earned a B+ in our inspections category and a B- for long-term care.
