With a population of 28,264 , Owosso, Michigan is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which does not offer you too many options to choose from. Despite only having a couple of nursing homes, this city received a first-rate city grade of A. We were so impressed with Owosso that we ranked it as one of the top 250 cities in the entire country. This is impressive given that we assessed thousands of cities around the country. Headlining this city's exemplary profile is its inspection reports, which we will address in the next section.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded Owosso an A+ in our inspections category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Owosso performed extremely well in our nursing category as well. As a result, we awarded Owosso a grade of A in this area. Rounding out its top notch report card, this place earned an A for its short-term care rating and a grade of B+ for long-term care.
