The West Palm Beach VA Healthcare System recently announced that a five-star overall Community Living Center (CLC) Compare rating was achieved at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center campus.
CLC Compare is a star rating system adapted from the Centers from Medicare and Medicaid in which a facility is rated between one and five stars and serves as a mechanism to benchmark both VA and community facilities together.
The rating is determined based upon the outcomes within three domains: unannounced survey performance, staffing, and quality measures. The West Palm Beach VA Healthcare System achieved a five-star rating across all three domains, reflecting the highest level of performance possible.
“The five-star rating is a driving force to create an exceptional experience for veterans that focuses on continuously raising standards and delivering the highest quality care,” Executive Director Cory Price said. “The CLC is home to long-stay veterans where bonds are built and memories are made. The team ensures the comfort and safety of all residents.”
The CLC provides short-stay rehabilitation, short-stay skilled nursing care, short-stay continuing care, long-stay continuing care, hospice, palliative and respite care.
