With 122,813 people, Santa Fe, New Mexico is a medium size city. Surprisingly, there are just 2 nursing homes there, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. Unfortunately, we awarded the nursing homes here city grade of D, which is one of our worst score at the city level. In spite of this uninspiring city grade, this city had one nursing home that did not receive a terrible score. Despite all of its shortcomings, one of the few highlights of this place's profile is its strong short-term care grade.

While its overall score was terrible, this city's nursing homes performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Cities with these kinds of short-term care scores typically have plenty of nursing homes offering physical therapy, highly skilled nursing and other services related to rehabilitation. We also wanted to point out that we awarded Santa Fe a C in the area of nursing. In the other categories we looked at, we gave Santa Fe grades of C and F for our inspections and long-term care categories respectively. As you can see, this city's long-term care score really dragged down its overall grade.
