With 7,607 people, Pana, Illinois is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which does not give you too many choices. Sadly, this city received a city grade of D, which is a sign that these nursing homes generally did not receive good grades in our assessment. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Decatur, which received a city grade of F. While we gave both cites terrible scores, we found the nursing homes in Pana to be a better bet. We really don't have many good things to say about this city's facilities, but they did receive surprisingly strong inspection grades.
