Share your VAMC experiences with this new web site
VetFriends.com, the largest website reuniting U.S. military veterans, has launched a nationwide online database of Department of Veterans Affiars (VA) hospitals with ratings and reviews at https://www.VAratings.com.
The goal of the site is to allow veterans to share their experiences, rate their local VA hospitals and clinics and to help improve and provide awareness to Veterans Affairs facilities nationwide.
VAratings.com provides a free ratings/review system with a directory of all VA hospitals, outpatient clinics, veteran centers, national cemeteries and intake centers. The rating system consists of a 5-star rating process with questions about a veteran’s visit that deal with department, ease of scheduling, wait times, treatment quality, staff’s quality of care and more. A comment section is also available where veterans can add more information and others visitors can respond directly to posts.
VAratings.com was created to provide objective reviews of services provided by the VA from U.S. veterans and their families. It is important for veterans to know that their VA facility has the highest quality of care and expertise. VAratings.com is a platform for information to be exchanged, questions asked and unbiased reviews are posted.
Each month a topic will be spotlighted in the awareness campaign featuring a specific health issue. The topic covered will coincide with the national awareness months such as Breast Cancer Awareness in October and American Diabetes Month in November. Additional resources include information on how veterans can obtain VA Benefits, along with a library of VA forms. Furthermore, health topics and articles address illnesses, new treatments and discoveries, along with healthy lifestyle tips plus a variety of others.
