Choose Well Scores Undergoing Revision

Dear Providers and Consumers:  

The website mechanism that scores all participating Choose Well facilities is under revision per our contract with the County of San Diego.  When complete, this will incorporate new health and safety codes, and standardize data related to Community Care Licensing site visits.  Therefore, some of the Choose Well scores shown on this site do not yet reflect these rating dynamics. 

We are making every effort to have all scores current soon after the start of 2018.  The score itself is only an 'indicator' of the performance of the facility.  If you would like updated information on any Choose Well facility we encourage you to contact the Choose Well team, (619) 795-2165, or to visit the ccld.ca.gov link at the bottom of every Choose Well Facility Profile page.
