We awarded the nursing homes in this city an excellent city grade of A-. Even with only a couple of nursing homes, this is still quite an achievement. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Portland, which which also appears to be a strong option. Nevertheless, we found the facilities in Gresham to be rated even higher than the ones in Portland.

For this reason, we awarded the city a grade of A for this category. Wrapping up its report card, the city earned grades of A- and B- for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively. Outside of its short-term care grade, this city's three other grades were outstanding.
