With 127,302 people, Racine, Wisconsin is a moderately populated city. Surprisingly, there are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. The nursing homes in this city received a strong city grade of B+. Even with only a couple of facilities, this is still a great sign. We were impressed enough with this city to rate it as one of the twenty five highest rated cities in Wisconsin. This statistic is also a reminder that this state has a long list of cities with excellent facilities. Fortunately, this city didn't have any weak links in any of the major categories. Additional information about these categories is available in the next paragraph.
This city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of the city's facilities received nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Racine an impressive grade of A in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Racine performed especially well in the area of short-term care as well. Consequently, Racine received a grade of A in that category. Rounding out its profile, the city earned grades of A- and C for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Outside of its long-term care rating, this place's other categories were remarkably strong.
