With nine nursing homes in the city, there are a decent number of facilities in Longview, Texas. We gave this city a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a strong city grade. We found that most cities received a B or higher, leaving this city on the wrong side of average. While we didn't give Longview an elite grade, it has a few facilities that received a grade of A- or higher. These facilities would be a good fit for most people.
This city's nursing homes received an inspection grade which is better than its overall grade. We awarded them a favorable grade of B+ in this category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. Longview's next best category is long-term care, where it received a B- in this area. Lastly, we awarded the city a C for short-term care and a C in nursing.
