Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center Recognized as One of the Top 10 Percent of Inpatient Rehabilitations Facilities in the United States

Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center cited for care that is effective, efficient, timely, and patient-centered

Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center has been ranked in the top 10 percent of 870 inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) that qualified to be ranked in the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR) in 2017.

The rankings were determined by using UDSMR's program evaluation model (PEM), a case mix-adjusted and severity-adjusted tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from nearly three-quarters of all IRFs in the country. UDSMR's PEM Report Card uses the indicators of efficiency and effectiveness contained in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' reporting tool for the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System (IRF PPS). The goal of the PEM Report Card is to recognize high-performing facilities for their delivery of quality patient care that is effective, efficient, timely, and patient-centered.
