There are just 3 nursing homes in Ossining, New York, providing for a relatively small population of 31,796 people. This city's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+, so what this place lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. We also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Port Chester, which received an impressive city grade in its own right. However, we found the facilities in Ossining to be rated even higher than the ones in Port Chester. We were so impressed with Ossining that we ranked it as one of the 500 best cities in the entire nation.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its facilities received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Ossining an elite grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, Ossining also really excelled in the category of short-term care, where we gave it an A-. Rounding out its profile, we gave Ossining strong scores for our long-term care and nursing categories as well.
