With a population of 16,972 people, Levelland, Texas is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't give you too many options to choose from. These facilities did not really excel from a quality point of view either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better scores at the city level. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards.

While its overall score was not elite, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This city's second best score came in the area of long-term care, where it received a B-. In the last two categories, this place earned grades of C and F for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating this poor may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
