State Veterans’ Homes

Florida’s network of six state veterans’ nursing homes has garnered the notable distinction of having all of its skilled nursing facilities rated at five stars by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System in 2008 to help residents, their families and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help make meaningful distinctions between high and low performing nursing homes. According to CMS, nursing homes with five stars are considered to be in the top 20 percent and have above average quality compared to other nursing homes in the state.
