The most common overall hospital quality star rating is three stars, out of a possible five stars. Only 25% of the 4,586 hospitals included in the survey received a four star rating. This is the fourth instance of CHI Memorial’s rating being affirmed.
“We are honored to again be recognized as one of the top quality hospitals in the country,” says Janelle Reilly, market CEO, CHI Memorial. “This recognition is the result of our physicians and employees’ dedication to providing the highest quality and compassionate care to all who come through our doors for medical treatment.”

CMS uses data regularly reported by hospitals and summarizes up to 57 quality measures into a star rating. This rating is designed to help individuals, family members, and care givers compare hospitals and easily understand complex quality information.
