There are surprisingly only 3 nursing homes in Walnut Creek, California, servicing a population of 82,557 people. Despite only having a couple of nursing homes, this city received a top-notch city grade of A. In fact, this place's city grade even surpassed the city grade of facilities in the local city of Concord. This is particularly impressive in light of the fact that we awarded those facilities in Concord a city grade of B+, which is a good grade in its own right. On top of this, Walnut Creek is also one of the 250 best cities in the entire nation.
As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that we awarded Walnut Creek an impressive grade of A in short-term care. Cities with these types of short-term care scores usually have plenty of facilities with physical therapy, highly skilled nursing and other services related to rehabilitation. We also wanted to point out that we awarded the city a grade of A- in our long-term care rating. Rounding out its straight A profile, the city earned an A- for nursing and an A- in the area of inspections.
