With a population of 16,372 people, Franklin, Pennsylvania is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options. The relatively small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a great grade at the city level. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of New Kensington. While we aren't writing glowing reviews about either city, we found the facilities in Franklin to be slightly better.

While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded Franklin an A- for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Franklin's next best category was short-term care, where we awarded it a B- in this category. Lastly, we awarded the city grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Even with an otherwise respectable performance, this place's poor long-term care grade may be concerning for many prospective residents.
