There are surprisingly only 2 nursing homes in Kennewick, Washington, providing for a population of 90,153 people. Despite not having a ton of nursing homes, this city received a world class city grade of A-. In fact, this city's city grade was far better than the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Walla Walla. While there is nothing wrong with the nursing homes in Walla Walla, we found Kennewick to be in a totally different league. On top of this, Kennewick is also one of the 500 best cities in the country.
To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this city a grade of A for our short-term care category. Short-term care grades of this caliber are a good sign for the quality of rehabilitation at the facilities in this city. In addition, we also wanted to point out that we awarded Kennewick a grade of A- for our nursing category. Rounding out its top notch report card, the city received an A- for its inspections rating and a B+ in long-term care.
