There are only 2 nursing homes in Smyrna, Tennessee, servicing a relatively small population of 49,322 people. These facilities didn't really stand out from a quality perspective either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. We also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Mount Juliet, which received a city grade of F. While we gave both cites low scores, we found the facilities in Smyrna to be a better bet.

In fact, some of its facilities received nearly perfect inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Smyrna one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A-. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Smyrna's second best score came in the area of nursing, where we gave it a C. Lastly, we gave the city rock bottom grades for our long-term care and short-term care areas respectively.
