Pharr, Texas is a relatively small city with 70,840 people. The city has only one nursing home, which is fewer than we were hoping for. We gave the city's lone nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is well below average by national standards. You may be happy with this facility. If you're searching for other options, you're simply going to have to look at other cities.
While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city's nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care rating. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. This nursing home also received one of our higher grades in the area of inspections, where it received a B. In our final two categories, this place earned a C for its short-term care score and a grade of F in the area of nursing. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating in this range may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
