Mayo Clinic hospitals across the organization have received Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The ratings provide patients with information about several dimensions of quality.
Eleven hospitals across Mayo Clinic have received star ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for Overall Hospital Quality.
Six of the 11 hospitals earned five stars — the highest score possible. The national average is three of five stars.
"Congratulations to all Mayo Clinic hospitals that received excellent CMS star ratings," says Andrew Limper, M.D., Mayo Clinic's interim chief value officer. "These recognitions are testimonies to our staff’s commitment to delivering extraordinary patient care every day.”
The star rating provides patients with information about several dimensions of quality in a single score. Star ratings are assigned based on a hospital's composite score of 51 quality metrics from inpatient and outpatient quality reporting programs.
The star ratings measure five broad categories:
- Safety of Care
- Patient Experience
- Timely and Effective Care
