There are just 3 nursing homes in Chestertown, Maryland, providing for a population of 12,853 people. This city's limited supply of nursing homes were awarded a good city grade of B. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Elkton, which received a city grade of F. We found Chestertown to be a far better option.

As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that we gave Chestertown an elite grade of A- in the category of short-term care. Short-term care grades this high are a great sign for the physical and occupational therapy staffing levels at the facilities in this city. We also wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received nearly perfect health inspections in recent years. For this reason, we awarded Chestertown an A- in this category. In our final two categories, the city earned grades of B- and D for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. We are admittedly disappointed by its long-term care grade, but there is still plenty to be enthusiastic about on this place's report card.
