With 184,039 people, Woodbridge, Virginia is a fairly large city. Surprisingly, there are only 2 nursing homes there, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. We gave this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a very solid rating. This is as good or better than the city grade of most of the cities in the nation. The best part of Woodbridge's impressive report card was its nursing homes' short-term care scores. Short-term care grades are discussed in the following paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, most of the nursing homes in Woodbridge performed remarkably well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded its facilities a grade of A- for this category, which is one of our best scores. Cities with these kinds of short-term care ratings usually have plenty of facilities offering physical therapy, highly skilled nursing and other services associated with rehabilitation. The city received very good inspection reports this year as well, earning a grade of B+ in that category. Rounding out its report card, the city earned grades of B+ and D for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. For the most part, we were impressed with this city's category grades, but it really struggled in our long-term care category.
