As good as the nursing homes are in Bradenton, we found Sun City Center to be even better. We were so impressed with Sun City Center that we ranked it as one of the 100 best cities in the nation.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, many of the facilities in Sun City Center performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded its facilities 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 calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. In addition, Sun City Center also performed extremely well in the area of short-term care, where it received an A for this area. Wrapping up its excellent profile, Sun City Center received grades of A- and B+ for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively.
