The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System was awarded a high three-star quality rating in Strategic Analytics for Improvement and Learning. 

This rating makes CTVHCS one of the most improved sites this year. 

SAIL was designed by the Department of Veterans Affairs for internal benchmarking within the VHA to promote high quality, safety and value-based healthcare across all of its medical centers.

In the fiscal year 2017, CTVHCS scored among the best in inpatient satisfaction, mental health continuity of care, mental health population coverage and reducing preventable admissions. High marks were also received in hospital adjusted length of stay and employee satisfaction. 

"This doesn't just happen - sustained performance improvement is a team sport, and your leadership is essential," Carolyn Clancy, MD, Executive in Charge, Veterans Health Administration said. "[CTVHCS] and [their] dedicated team have demonstrated commitment, persistence and dedication to assure that the veterans we served receive timely access to safe, high-quality care."
