Parker Adventist among hospitals with 5-star Medicare rating

Overall score based on composite of seven categories, 57 quality measures

Posted

Parker Adventist Hospital was one of 12 hospitals in Colorado to receive a 5-star rating in the February hospital quality ratings release from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Nationally, 407 hospitals — slightly less than 10 percent of 4,500 rated by CMS — received a five-star rating. The most common overall hospital quality rating is three stars.

“To create a true culture of safety and reliability, every member of our team plays a role,” Dr. Shauna Gulley, Centura chief clinical officer, said in a news release. “Our committed physicians and caregivers drive toward a shared objective for the best patient experience. Safety isn't just a clinical care goal at Centura. It is a system priority because we know every community, every neighborhood, every life deserves to be whole and healthy.”

In addition to Parker Adventist, Mercy Regional Medical Center in Durango and Penrose-St. Francis Health Services in Colorado Springs are the other two Centura Health hospitals to earn the top rating for overall hospital quality.

The overall hospital quality star ratings are based on a composite score from seven categories containing a total of 57 hospital quality measures. Outcome categories include mortality, safety of care, readmissions, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care and effective use of medical imaging.

Ninety-three hospitals in Colorado were rated in the most recent data release. For information about the hospital quality ratings, visit www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare/Data/Hospital-overall-ratings-calculation.html.
