CMS Awards 5-Star Rating to St. Clair Hospital for High Quality Care

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has awarded St. Clair Hospital a 5-star quality rating, the highest rating available, as part of its refresh of the Hospital Compare website. It was the only 5-star rating awarded in western Pennsylvania.

Since 2016, CMS has published ratings of more than 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals on the Hospital Compare website to help patients choose a provider based on documented performance in areas such as quality, patient satisfaction, and patient safety. CMS calculates an overall rating using a composite of 57 metrics. CMS uses a 1 to 5 star scale, with 5 stars being the highest rating. The scores are based on hospital performance in seven categories: Mortality; Readmission; Safety of Care; Patient Experience; Effectiveness of Care; Timeliness of Care; and Efficient Use of Imaging.
