Newark, Ohio offers only five nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. Sadly, these nursing homes did not excel from a quality standpoint. Its nursing homes received a city grade of D, which is one of our worst score at the city level. Surprisingly, this city's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of facilities in the local city of Westerville, which received a terrible city grade. We would advise you to be very selective in either city. The only positive thing we can say about this city is that it did not receive any F's in any of the categories we assessed. Additional information about its category grades can be found below.
While its overall rating was abysmal, we awarded the nursing homes in Newark a B+ for our inspections rating. This category clearly isn't the reason for its concerning overall grade. Our inspection scores are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Surprisingly, we also gave this city a grade of C for our nursing rating. In the other categories we looked at, this place received a C for short-term care and a grade of D for long-term care. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care score of this caliber may be an issue for some prospective residents.
