About the Facility – James H Quillen VAMC

The James H. Quillen VA Medical Center was recently recognized by a national publication as a Top Hospital, earning the award for accomplishing recognition for the following criteria: communication between nurses and doctors as well as responsiveness of hospital staff, the cleanliness of the facility and hospital care within itself. This assessment of the hospital is based on the SMC HCAPS survey which is a survey related to patient perception of their experience of care in a hospital and so it genuinely comes directly from the veterans, making this award all the more meaningful. Being the only hospital in the state to receive a 5-star rating, this main campus provides primary care and specialty services including addiction and substance abuse treatment, cardiology, mental health care, women's health services, eye care, nutrition counseling, foot care, hospice and palliative care, and more.
