The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) use a star rating system to rate over 4000 hospitals across the country. The rating system is publically reported and helps guide patients as they select where to receive their healthcare. Hospitals are rated from 1-5 stars, with 5 being the highest award possible. CMS calculates the rating by including information on mortality, safety of care, readmissions, patient satisfaction, quality measures, claims data and timeliness of care. Those numbers are then calculated in order to assign the star rating. The national average is 3 stars.
This year Bonner General Health was awarded a 4 star rating! This is a great accomplishment and shows the patients in our community, and nationally, that we provide excellent care.
