CMS (The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) has updated their Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings for 2020, giving 407 hospitals a rating of 5 stars. More than 4,500 hospitals nationwide were assigned star ratings that were ranked based on their performance across seven areas of quality.
For Ohio, there were 23 hospitals that reached a 5-star rating. We are pleased to announce that Pomerene Hospital was one of them!
“Achieving a 5-star rating from CMS’s Hospital Compare is a true honor for Pomerene. In my opinion, this high rating is a reflection and testament of the personal commitment, dedication, compassion and professionalism our team of physicians, clinical providers and staff strive for every task, every encounter, every day.Pomerene believes in the significance of the healthcare “triple aim,” affordable healthcare, high patient satisfaction and high quality patient care.To be recognized by such a comprehensive measure of healthcare quality helps to validate Pomerene’s efforts towards achieving its mission, “To Care for Our Communities Health.”While rating and ranking platforms are not perfect and are not a panacea for helping patients choose a “perfect” hospital, what this rating offers is a measure of trust and confidence to our patients and the community we serve that Pomerene, its physicians, clinical providers and staff are committed to providing high quality patient care.” Stated Jason Justus, CEO of Pomerene.
People mostly use this tool to compare hospitals based on quality measures, allowing one to research specific areas of interest – from infection control to timely and effective care and unplanned hospital visits.
This is the first star ratings update since February 2019. This year:
228 hospitals received one star
710 hospitals received two stars
1,191 hospitals received three stars
1,136 received four stars
407 received five stars
