Star Rating

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare hospitals. We obtained a 5-star rating that is available to the public on the Hospital Compare web site for 2020, 2021 & 2022. The overall rating ranges from one to five stars. The more stars, the better a hospital performed on the available quality measures. The most common overall rating is 3 stars. 13.5% of hospitals obtain the 5-star rating.
