There are 19 nursing homes in Honolulu, Hawaii, servicing a population of 403,114 people. This city's nursing homes received a phenomenal city grade of A-. A city grade of this caliber is not common for a city with so many nursing homes. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Wahiawa, which received a city grade of C. We found Honolulu to be a far better option. Not surprisingly, Honolulu has 14 nursing homes that received elite grades. This is just about as good as it gets.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded this city a grade of A for our short-term care rating. Cities with these types of short-term care scores generally have nursing homes with physical therapy, highly skilled nursing and other services related to rehabilitation. In addition, Honolulu also performed remarkably well in the area of nursing, where we gave it an A for that area. Rounding out its report card, we gave the city strong grades for our inspections and long-term care areas as well.
