With just three nursing homes in the city, you only have a few options in Clermont, Florida. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a superb city grade of A-. Even with only a couple of facilities, this is still a great achievement. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of The Villages, which received an impressive city grade in its own right. Nevertheless, we found the facilities in Clermont to be rated even higher than the ones in The Villages. Topping off a great profile, Clermont is one of the top twenty five rated cities in all of Florida. This datapoint is a reminder that Florida has plenty of cities with excellent nursing homes.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A for this category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. In addition, Clermont also performed remarkably well in the area of long-term care, where it earned a grade of A for that category. Rounding out its first-rate report card, we gave the city grades of A- and B for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
