Utica, Michigan is an average size city with 78,577 people. It features just 4 nursing homes, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. We gave the nursing homes here an excellent city grade of B+. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still an impressive city grade. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Troy, which received a city grade of F. We found Utica to be on a whole other level. Even in a state with many excellent cities to find nursing homes, we ranked this city as one of the twenty five highest rated cities in Michigan.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed remarkably well in our short-term care category. It received one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A. Strong short-term care grades typically mean the city's nursing homes offer favorable physical therapy staffing levels. In addition, Utica also really excelled in the category of inspections, where we gave it a grade of A-. Not many cities earned a better grade in this category. In our final two categories, the city received a B+ in our nursing category and a C in long-term care.
