Reinforcing its long-standing commitment to patient safety and quality enhancements, Memorial Hospital has announced the organization has earned a prestigious national rating for safe patient care.
Memorial Hospital has earned a five-star quality rating in patient care by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) summary star ratings. CMS rates hospitals from one to five stars, based on their safety, efficiency, and patient experience.
“Our teams at Memorial are honored to receive the highest possible rating of five stars for quality from CMS,” comments Chip Hubbs, President and CEO of Memorial Health. “Memorial is one of only 483 hospitals in the U.S. to earn this designation. Compared to more than 4,600 other hospitals nationwide, only 10% received five stars. Receiving this highly sought after rating demonstrates the continuation of our reputation as a high-performing healthcare system with caring, expert team members, physicians, and providers.”
The ratings provide consumers with a comparison tool that can be used to help make informed decisions about their healthcare. Memorial Hospital encourages patients to use Care Compare as another measure in their healthcare provider selection process.
