The nursing homes here received a top-notch city grade of A-. We also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Moorhead, which received a city grade of B-.

This city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Fargo an impressive grade of A for this area. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, Fargo also performed extremely well in the area of nursing, where we gave it an A- for this area. Wrapping up its excellent report card, we awarded the city grades of A- and B+ for our long-term care and short-term care categories respectively.
