Charles George VA Medical Center rated among the best at state, regional and national levels

Press release from WNC VA Health Care System:

The Charles George VA Medical Center was listed among the best hospitals not only in North Carolina, but in the southern region and nationally.

Becker’s has compiled a list of the best hospitals for patient experience in North Carolina using the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems scores from CMS.

The HCAHPS summary star rating is the average of the star ratings of the 10 topic-specific HCAHPS measures. The rating combines information about different aspects of patient experience of care to make it easier to compare hospitals.

The figures are from the CMS Hospital Compare website and represent data released Jan. 26, based on data from July 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021 — three quarters rather than the customary four. CMS said users should interpret the data with caution, as it’s based on “fewer months of data, fewer discharged patients and fewer hospitals than normal.”

The hospitals below received a five-star patient experience summary rating.

North Carolina’s top-rated hospitals for patient experience:

Asheville-Oteen VA Medical Center

Chatham Hospital (Siler City)

Davie Medical Center (Mocksville)

North Carolina Specialty Hospital (Durham)

St. Luke’s Hospital (Columbus)

    Could it be that the VA Hospital now employs the doctors who quit at Mission Hospital? …maybe it would be a good idea for Mission to replace their loss of doctors with the homeless who have to move out of the temporary shelter at Ramada Inn. Mission would save some of the desperately needed money.
