With a population of 100,355 , Scranton, Pennsylvania is a moderately populated city. Surprisingly, there are only 2 nursing homes there, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. We gave this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a good grade. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Binghamton, which received a city grade of C. We found Scranton to be a far better option. Fortunately, this place's nursing homes did not have any poor grades in any of the four major categories. More information about its category grades is available in the next section.
In addition to a strong overall grade, this city's nursing homes also received favorable government inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with a B+. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. In addition, Scranton also excelled in the category of nursing with a B. Finally, the city earned a B in our short-term care category and a B- in the area of long-term care.
