Pinehurst, North Carolina offers just two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. This city received a decent city grade of B- for an overall score. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Raeford, which received a city grade of D. While we aren't writing glowing reviews about either city, we found the nursing homes in Pinehurst to be slightly better. One of the best aspects of this place's profile is its remarkable short-term care score, which we will address in the next section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, the nursing homes in Pinehurst performed especially well in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded Pinehurst one of our highest ratings in that category with an A. High end short-term care grades usually mean a city's facilities have high levels of physical therapy staffing. In addition, the city also performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections, where it received an A- for that area. In the last two categories, Pinehurst received a B- for its nursing rating and a grade of D for long-term care. Even with an otherwise respectable performance, this city's weak long-term care grade may be a concern for many prospective residents.
