With 63,844 people, Weslaco, Texas is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not provide you with too many options. The small number of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Brownsville, which received a city grade of D. While neither city comes highly recommended, Weslaco looks like a slightly better choice. Looking at the individual nursing homes in Weslaco, none of them really stand out. Nevertheless, we were still able to find a couple of decent nursing homes in the city.
Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city performed remarkably well in our inspections category. In fact, some of its facilities received almost perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, Weslaco received one of our highest grades in that area with an A-. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, the city also fared well in the category of long-term care with a B. In the last two categories, we gave Weslaco terrible grades in our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
