Bend, Oregon is a medium size city with 105,390 people. It features only 2 nursing homes, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. We awarded the nursing homes here an excellent city grade of A-. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. Bend has the distinction of being one of the three highest rated cities in the state of Oregon. This city's report card is also consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next section.
This city received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that we awarded Bend an impressive grade of A in the area of short-term care. High end grades in this category generally mean the city's nursing homes have favorable levels of physical therapy staffing. In addition, we also awarded Bend an A- for our inspections category. Rounding out its phenomenal report card, Bend earned grades of A- and B for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
