One of 266 hospitals in nation with 5-star rating
CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) released new Patient Experience star ratings July 31, giving 266 hospitals nationwide a rating of five stars.
The federal administrator of the nation’s major healthcare programs assigned a patient experience star rating to 3,478 hospitals based on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores collected from January 1 through December 31, 2019.
Ratings are derived from the HCAHPS survey, which is administered to a random sample of adult patients across all types of medical conditions between 48 hours and six weeks post-discharge. Surveys are not restricted to Medicare beneficiaries. To receive a rating, hospitals must have received at least 100 completed HCAHPS surveys over a given four-quarter period and be eligible for public reporting of the measures.
CMS gave 266 hospitals (8 percent) five stars for patient experience, the highest score a hospital can receive. Orange City Area Health System was one of 13 hospitals in Iowa to receive the five star rating.
