Greenwich Hospital earns Five-Star Rating from federal agency

Monday, August 1, 2022

 

GH CMS 5 Star
Under the banner “Heroes work here,” Greenwich Hospital staff gathered to celebrate earning a five-star hospital quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services – the highest distinction offered by the federal agency – for a second year in a row.

 

Greenwich, CT (Aug. 1, 2022) – For a second consecutive year, Greenwich Hospital has earned a five-star hospital quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) – the highest distinction offered by the federal agency.

“This designation is a tremendous honor that recognizes our culture of excellence and the dedication of physicians, nurses and staff who deliver exceptional care each and every day,” said Diane Kelly, Greenwich Hospital president. “They are the reason why thousands of Connecticut and New York residents turn to Greenwich Hospital for care.”

Found on Medicare’s Care Compare website, the CMS ratings provide consumers with a simple way to compare hospitals’ quality and performance. The ratings are based on more than 40 quality measurements in five categories: mortality, safety of care, readmissions after treatment of common conditions, patient experience, and timely and effective care.

This year, only 13.8 percent of the 3,093 hospitals rated by CMS across the country earned a five-star designation.

For Greenwich Hospital, the CMS recognition comes on the heels of recent national distinctions, including six patient experience awards from Press Ganey, a national organization that measures consumer satisfaction; a second consecutive designation as a Magnet® organization by the American Nurses Credentialing Center; and national recognition for stroke care from the American Heart/American Stroke Association.
