With a population of 74,975 people, Huntington, West Virginia is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't provide you with too many choices. These nursing homes in this city earned this city a good city grade of B. This city is one of the five best cities in the state according to our ratings. This is simply not a state with a long supply of cities with high end facilities. This city's profile was also consistent as it didn't receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next paragraph.
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded Huntington an A- for our inspections category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. The city also fared well in the area of health short-term care with a B+. Wrapping up its report card, we awarded the city a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating and a B in nursing. We truly found this city to be very competent in each category we assessed.
