In fact, this is the sixth best city in the state of Kansas according to our rankings. This place's strong report card was highlighted by its nursing homes' inspection ratings, which you can find in the next section.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of the city's facilities received almost flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded Manhattan an elite grade of A- for this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. The city also really excelled in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of A-. Rounding out its excellent report card, Manhattan earned an A- for its short-term care score and a grade of B+ in long-term care.
