The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released their Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings for 2023 and Providence St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka received a star rating of four stars.
Over 3000 hospitals received star ratings between one star and five stars in the U.S. based on their performance across five quality categories – mortality, safety, readmission, patient experience, and timely and effective care. According to CMS, in 2023:
• 250 hospitals received a one-star rating
• 668 hospitals received a two-star rating
• 872 hospitals received a three-star rating
• 803 hospitals received a four-star rating
• 483 hospitals received a five-star rating
“This recognition is a testament to our caregivers at St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka who continue to demonstrate their commitment to clinical excellence,” said Interim Associate Chief Medical Officer James Goldberg, MD. “I am enormously proud of the care they deliver to our communities and their devotion in advancing the best clinical practices in support of our mission to serve ‘our dear neighbor’.”
The Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating (Overall Star Rating) summarizes a variety of measures across the five areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. Once reporting thresholds are met, a hospital’s Overall Star Rating is calculated using only those measures for which data are available.
