With just two nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options to choose from in Ardmore, Oklahoma. We gave the nursing homes in this city an excellent city grade of B+. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still a great sign. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Sherman, which received a city grade of D. We found Ardmore to be a far better option. On top of this, Ardmore is one of the three highest rated cities in all of Oklahoma.
