With 30,305 people, Gulf Breeze, Florida is a small city. Unfortunately, there is only one nursing home there. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received a first-rate overall grade of A-. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Fort Walton Beach a city grade of B, which is also an impressive grade. Nevertheless, we found this facility in Gulf Breeze to be in a totally different league than the ones in Fort Walton Beach. Even in a state with many good places to find nursing homes, we ranked Gulf Breeze as one of the top twenty five rated cities in Florida.
On top of being an excellent facility overall, this city's nursing home really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes earned a better grade in this area. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines.

Lastly, the city were awarded a grade of B+ for its short-term care grade and a B- in the area of long-term care.
