Delray Beach, Florida is a medium size city with 107,599 people. It has 5 nursing homes, which is a decent selection for a city of this size. The nursing homes in this city received a phenomenal city grade of A-. Even with only a couple of nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the nearby city of Stuart a city grade of B, which is also an impressive grade. Nevertheless, we found the facilities in Delray Beach to be in a totally different league than the ones in Stuart. As you might expect, Delray Beach ended up having 4 facilities that were awarded a grade of A- or better. Few cities offer more than one nursing home of this quality.
As mentioned above, this city received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that we awarded Delray Beach an elite grade of A in the area of short-term care. Short-term care grades of this caliber are a great sign for the physical and occupational therapy staffing levels at the facilities in the city. The city also performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections, where it received an A for this area. Wrapping up its profile, this place received a B+ for its nursing score and a B+ for long-term care. We really found this place to be competent in each category we assessed.
