Discovery Village At The Forum is proud to announce that it has received a “deficiency free” rating from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the state organization responsible for the licensure and regulation of health care providers, including assisted living communities. A deficiency-free rating designates that Discovery Village At The Forum is in full compliance with AHCA regulations regarding the health and safety of its residents.

During a comprehensive, unannounced inspection of Discovery Village At The Forum, an AHCA representative collected information through a review of numerous records, policies and procedures, staffing reports and other documents. They also evaluated the team members as they went about their daily procedures, and conducted interviews with residents, family members, staff, visitors, and volunteers. At the conclusion of the inspection, AHCA determined that no issues or problems were found, earning Discovery Village At The Forum a deficiency-free rating.

“We are pleased to announce that our community has earned the deficiency-free rating from the AHCA,” said Richard J. Hutchinson, CEO and co-founder of Discovery Senior Living. “This rating is difficult to receive in our industry, and it serves as testament to our team’s devotion to our residents and their continued efforts to protect their health and safety.”
