There are only 3 nursing homes in Waterville, Maine, servicing a population of 26,248 people. While this place didn't have a ton of nursing homes, this city's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+. We were so impressed with this city that we ranked it as one of the fifteen highest rated cities in the state of Maine. This city's report card is also very consistent as it didn't receive a single poor category grade either. You can read more about these in the next section.
As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of the city's facilities received virtually perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Waterville an elite grade of A in this category. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. The city also performed extremely well in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A- for this category. In the other categories we looked at, this place received a B+ for its nursing rating and a grade of B- in long-term care.
