SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The Syracuse VA Medical Center operates one of the highest-rated nursing homes in the VA system nationwide.

The Department of Veterans Affairs this week publicly disclosed for the first time annual ratings for its 133 nursing homes. The ratings range from one star, the worst, to five stars, the best.

The Syracuse VA’s nursing home on the eighth floor of the hospital is one of 34 VA nursing homes nationwide that get five-star ratings.

The Syracuse VA nursing home has 41 patients.

“This five-star rating is a reflection of the hard work of our staff and their dedication to providing our resident veterans with a comfortable, safe and home-like environment combined with excellent medical care,” Dr. Judy Hayman, director of the Syracuse VA, said in a prepared statement.

Here are ratings for other VA nursing homes in New York: Batavia, five-stars; Bronx, four-stars; Jamaica, four-stars; Albany, three-stars; Buffalo, three-stars; Hudson Valley, three-stars; Northport, two-stars; Canandaigua, two-stars, Montrose, two-stars; and Bath, two-stars.

The VA said it will release the star ratings annually as part of an effort to be more transparent and help veterans make health care choices.
