With a population of 79,009 people, Evanston, Illinois is a moderately populated city. There are 7 nursing homes there, which provides you with multiple options to choose from. We gave the nursing homes here a city grade of B, which is a very solid grade. This is an average city grade nationally, which is nothing to be ashamed of. This city's profile is also very consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, the nursing homes in Evanston performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A for that 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 of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. In addition, Evanston also earned one of our better grades in our short-term care category, with a B+. Finally, this place received a B- for long-term care and a B- in nursing.
