With a population of 24,727 people, Newport, Rhode Island is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes there, which doesn't provide you with too many choices. While this place didn't have a ton of nursing homes, this city's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+. In fact, this city's city grade far surpassed the city grade of facilities in the local city of Woonsocket. While there's nothing wrong with this grade, we found Newport to be in a totally different league. Finally, this city has the prestigious distinction of being the 5 best city in Rhode Island according to our ratings.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, many of the facilities in Newport performed spectacularly well in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded the city a grade of A- for this category, which is one of our best scores. High end grades in this category generally mean a city's facilities have high nurse staffing levels. In addition, Newport performed spectacularly well in the category of short-term care as well. As a result, we gave it an A- in this area. Rounding out its quality report card, Newport earned a grade of B+ for its inspections rating and a grade of B for long-term care. This place really did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
