There are two nursing homes in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, so at least you have a few options to choose from. While it only has a couple of nursing homes, this city received a superb city grade of A. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Norristown. We found the facilities in Ephrata to be in a totally different league than the ones in Norristown. One of the major highlights of this city's exemplary report card is its nursing homes' inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next section.
