There are only 4 nursing homes located in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, providing for a relatively small population of 40,220 people. The nursing homes here received a very good city grade of B+. Even with just a few facilities, this is still a great sign. We also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Fond Du Lac, which received a city grade of B-. While there is nothing wrong with the nursing homes in Fond Du Lac, we found Manitowoc to be on a whole other level. This city's profile was also very consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can learn more about these in the next section.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's nursing homes received virtually perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Manitowoc an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. In addition, the city also performed spectacularly well in the area of short-term care, with an A- for this area. Lastly, Manitowoc received a B in our nursing category and a B- in long-term care.
