As of December 11, 2019, all VA medical center web sites added a link to a VA site that compares local medical center performance.  Just go to the front page of the VA San Diego Healthcare System and select the “Compare your VA Facility” button on the home page (grey left sidebar).  There you will find the information for San Diego VA on timeliness, quality, and Veteran satisfaction:
  • Wait times for appointments by location (medical center or clinics)
  • Same day services available
  • Hospital Compare data (compares VA facilities to other hospitals in the area)
  • Outpatient Compare data (how do individual VA facilities compare to other clinics in the area?)
  • Nursing home compare
  • Patient Experience Compare data
  • VA facility quality data
  • Veteran satisfaction (patients reported they were always or usually able to get an appointment when needed for primary care (routine).
