With 92,865 people, Lynnwood, Washington is a medium size city. Surprisingly, there are just 2 nursing homes there, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. These facilities earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a terrible grade, but it is not as strong of a grade as we like to see either. This place's city grade narrowly surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Marysville, which received an awful city grade. If choosing between the two, Lynnwood looks like a better bet. One of the highlights of this city's profile is its nursing homes' strong nursing grades, which is addressed in the following section.
The nursing homes in Lynnwood received a nursing grade which is better than its overall grade. We awarded it a strong grade of B+ in this category.

Finally, Lynnwood received a grade of B- for its inspections grade and a grade of D in the area of long-term care. Clearly, this city's long-term care rating really pulled down its overall score.
