Memorial Hospital Receives Five Star Quality Rating
On February 28, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its most recent quality rating for hospitals. Once again, Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center received a five-star overall performance rating, the highest rating possible.
Memorial Hospital was one of only 293 hospitals nationwide to receive this distinction, and one of only 13 hospitals in Indiana. The additional five-star recipients in Indiana included: Eskenazi Health, Indianapolis; Franciscan Health, Carmel; Franciscan Health, Mooresville; Indiana University Health North, Carmel; IU Health West, Avon; Margaret Mary Health, Batesville; Physicians’ Medical Center, New Albany; Reid Health, Richmond; Schneck Medical Center, Seymour; St. Mary Medical Center, Hobart; St. Vincent Heart Center of Indiana, Indianapolis; and The Women’s Hospital, Newburgh.
“While we are extremely proud to receive the Five-Star distinction by CMS, our focus at Memorial Hospital continues to be on our Mission and those we serve,” said E. Kyle Bennett, President/CEO of Memorial Hospital. “Our work at continually improving our quality and excellence will never cease for caring for our patients is our highest priority.”
The assessment comes from a hospital rating system based on a variety of measures across seven areas of quality—ranging from one to five stars—and shows how well each hospital performs, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S. The more stars, the better a hospital performs with the most common overall rating being three stars. The report, available on the Hospital Compare website, reflects comprehensive quality of care in our nation’s hospitals.
