Where are CMS' new overall 5-star hospitals?

When CMS updated the formula used in its Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating program in December, the number of hospitals that received the highest possible overall rating fell from 112 in October to 83 in December.

Even though CMS reported 83 hospitals received the top ranking in December, the Hospital Compare spreadsheet shows just 82 hospitals receiving five stars as an overall quality rating. Becker's is awaiting comment from CMS about the discrepancy.

Below is a listing of 82 hospitals that received five stars from CMS in December, broken down by state, as listed in Hospital Compare.
