With a population of 38,352 , Port Chester, New York is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't give you too many options. This place's nursing homes received a strong city grade of B+, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for by having high quality nursing homes. We were impressed enough with Port Chester to rate it as one of the top twenty five rated cities in the state of New York. This is also a reminder that New York has a long list of cities with excellent facilities. In particular, we wanted to make you aware that there is one really elite facility in the city. This is probably where we'd begin our search in this city.
On top of having quality nursing homes overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few cities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. The city also performed remarkably well in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A- for this category. In the other categories we looked at, the city earned a B for its short-term care score and a B- for nursing.
