There are just 3 nursing homes located in Valhalla, New York, servicing a population of 8,195 people. We gave the nursing homes in this city a first-rate city grade of A-. Even with only a few nursing homes, this is still quite an achievement. In fact, this place's city grade even surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Monsey. This is particularly impressive in light of the fact that we awarded those nursing homes in Monsey a city grade of B+, which is actually a good grade in its own right. Lastly, Valhalla is also one of the top 500 cities in the nation.
This city received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of the city's nursing homes received virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Valhalla an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. In addition, the city also really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A. Rounding out its impressive profile, the city were awarded a B+ for its long-term care grade and a B+ in the area of nursing. This city really did not have any weak links as far as we could tell.
