With a population of 22,409 people, Mattoon, Illinois is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not give you too many options. Sadly, these nursing homes did not excel from a quality standpoint. Its nursing homes received a city grade of D, which is a terrible score at the city level. We also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Champaign. While we aren't high on either city, we found the facilities in Mattoon to be a bit better. We really don't have many positive things to say about this city's nursing homes, but they did receive surprisingly impressive inspection grades. You can scroll down to find out about this.
While its overall rating was awful, we actually awarded Mattoon a B for our inspections rating. This category obviously is not the source of this place's alarming overall grade. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. Surprisingly, this city performed decently in our short-term care category as well, where it earned a B- for that category. In our final two categories, Mattoon received terrible grades in our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
