In 2017 64% (94 out of 146) of VA Medical Centers showed Improvements compared to their baseline one year earlier. Great news! Thank you Secretary Shulkin.
The Mountain Home Medical Center received a 4 out of 5 and on their way to a five star with the new leadership and vision of Facility Director Dean Borsis.
However, many of the worst VA hospitals in the country last year remain among the worst this year, according to internal rankings released on October 25, 2017 by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Click here to view the full report.
Nearly a dozen of the medical centers who received one out of five stars in quality ratings this year received the same low score in 2016.
They include three veterans hospitals in Tennessee in Nashville, Murfreesboro and Memphis.
Veterans’ ethos does not allow defeat. Demand a better VA Hospital. Contact the White House Veterans Hotline at 855-948-2311 and don’t stop fighting until your hospital has a 5 star rating.
