The 19 double-5-star hospitals

CMS assigns hospitals two major star ratings: the HCAHPS summary star rating, based exclusively on patient survey scores; and the Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating, which incorporates outcomes measures as well as patient experience scores.

Currently, 188 hospitals have a five-star HCAHPS summary star rating and 83 have a five-star overall hospital quality star rating.

The following 19 hospitals are a rare breed, as they are the only hospitals in the nation that currently have the highest possible rating — five stars — in both of those rating programs. They are listed alphabetically below.
