There are just 3 nursing homes in Newburyport, Massachusetts, servicing a relatively small population of 17,416 people. This city's nursing homes received a first-rate city grade of A-, so what this place lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. In fact, this place's city grade far surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the nearby city of Lowell. While there's nothing wrong with the nursing homes in Lowell, we found Newburyport to be on a whole other level. This city's impressive report card was highlighted by its nursing homes' inspection scores, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes 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 Newburyport an impressive grade of A for this area. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. In addition, the city also performed remarkably well in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A- for this area. Wrapping up its top notch profile, we gave the city grades of A- and B for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
