Cambridge, Massachusetts is a medium size city with 105,321 people. The city features just 3 nursing homes, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. This city's nursing homes received a world class city grade of A-, so what this place lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. We found this city grade to be considerably better than the city grade of D received by the nearby city of Arlington. If you are choosing between these places, Cambridge appears to be the likely winner. The best aspect of this city's strong profile is its nursing homes' short-term care ratings. Short-term care grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, most of the facilities in Cambridge performed remarkably well in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded the city a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Short-term care scores this high are a good sign for the quality of rehabilitation at the nursing homes in a city. The city performed especially well in terms of its long-term care grade as well. Consequently, we awarded it an A- in this category. Wrapping up its straight A report card, we awarded the city excellent grades in our nursing and inspections categories respectively.
