Monroe Clinic Earns Overall FIVE-STAR Rating

Monroe Clinic is one of only 293 hospitals to achieve a five-star ranking from the CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) in a review process that included over 4,500 nationwide. That translates to only 7 percent of the nation’s hospitals earning a 5-star rating from Medicare in all areas measured. It’s a rating standard that includes the review of over 4,500 hospitals nationwide.

Medicare.gov houses the Hospital Compare tool, which includes an overall star rating of the nation’s hospitals, as well as individual ratings for specific quality factors including: patient experience, safety, effectiveness of care, patient re-admissions, efficient use of medical imaging, timeliness of care, and mortality.

Medicare’s system is modeled after the star rating system used by hotels, restaurants and other service industries where consumers choose higher star rating facilities to help ensure the best experience possible.

 

Drawing back the curtain on local healthcare’s quality measures

Hospital Compare was created through the efforts of Medicare and the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA). The HQA was a public-private collaboration established in December 2002 to promote reporting on hospital quality of care
