Lebanon Veterans Affairs Nursing Home Receives 5-Star Rating

Data Show VA Facilities Compare Closely With Private Sector Nursing Homes Overall

 

For Immediate Release – June 14, 2018

LEBANON, Pa. – The U.S Department of Veterans Affairs’ Lebanon VA Medical Center (VAMC) announced its nursing home received 5-stars as part of its annual performance rating.

Lebanon VAMC’s announcement comes after VA extended its unprecedented 18-month record of transparency disclosures by making public for the first time its annual nursing home ratings for every facility in the country.

The data show that, overall, VA’s nursing home system – composed of more than 130 community living centers – compares closely with private sector nursing homes, even though the department on average cares for sicker patients in its nursing homes than do private facilities.

Robert W. Callahan, Jr. the director and CEO of Lebanon VAMC noted, “VA nursing homes serve a much higher proportion of residents with conditions such as prostate obstruction, spinal cord injury, mental illness, homelessness, PTSD, combat injury, terminal illness, and other conditions rarely seen in private nursing homes. We are extremely proud of our staff’s commitment to caring for the nation’s guardians in ways that make a real and measurable difference in the lives of their patients.”

Lebanon VA Medical Center is one of 170 medical centers in the nation with the sole purpose of providing world-class medical care to America’s Veterans. Lebanon VAMC serves a nine county area in South Central Pennsylvania covering Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, Schuylkill and York counties. Lebanon VAMC also currently oversees community clinics located in Camp Hill, Lancaster, Pottsville, Wyomissing, York and Fort Indiantown Gap. If you are a Veteran, you may be eligible to receive care and benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. To learn more, call 717-228-6000.
