Why is the star rating important for consumers and patients? The star rating for hospital facilities is a useful tool to help consumers and patients choose the highest quality of care.
“We are honored, and it’s no surprise that we received the CMS 4-Star Rating because of the compassionate care and dedication to service our co-workers exhibit every day,” said Tony Rothermich, administrator. “Our entire staff strives to show excellence from the co-workers at the front desk, to the clinicians, nurses and physicians who care for our patients, it takes the whole team to make this happen. One way of knowing how patients feel about the care we provide is by looking at CMS quality measures.”
