While this place didn't have a ton of nursing homes, this city's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+.

Lastly, this city has the distinction of being one of the top ten rated cities in all of Rhode Island.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city performed remarkably well in our short-term care category. We awarded Newport one of our best grades in that area with a grade of A-. With a short-term care rating this high we would expect many of the facilities in Newport to offer high levels of physical and occupational therapy staffing.
