There are surprisingly just 4 nursing homes in Orem, Utah, servicing a decent size population of 88,528 people. This city's nursing homes received a world class city grade of A-, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for by having high quality nursing homes.

We were so impressed with this city that we rated it as one of the top 500 cities in the entire country.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Orem an impressive grade of A for this area. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. In addition, we also wanted to emphasize that we gave Orem a grade of A in our short-term care category. Wrapping up its first-rate profile, we gave Orem grades of A- and B for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively.
