One of the reasons this ended up being a strong nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection rating. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In this category, we gave this facility an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care grade.

This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive.
