There are 8 nursing homes located in Elkhart, Indiana, providing for a population of 97,528 people. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a city grade of C, which is not quite as strong of a score as we like. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade to be better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Mishawaka. With Mishawaka receiving a terrible grade, Elkhart certainly appears to be a better option. One of the highlights of this place's profile is its nursing homes' strong inspection grades, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
It should also be noted that this city's inspection grade was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Elkhart a B+ for its inspection grade, which is one of our higher grades. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Elkhart earned its second highest score in the area of nursing, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which also isn't too bad. In the last two categories, the city earned a C for its short-term care score and a C in the area of long-term care.
