With a population of 27,035 people, Vidor, Texas is a small city. There are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which does not offer you too many choices. We awarded this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a quality rating. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Lake Charles, which received a city grade of C. We found Vidor to be a bit better.

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the facilities in Vidor performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded it one of our best ratings in that area with an A+. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Vidor performed extremely well in the area of long-term care as well.

We are admittedly disappointed with its short-term care grade, but there's still plenty to be impressed with on this place's report card.
