Where are CMS' new overall 1-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 lowest possible rating of one star fell from 121 in October to 112.

Even though CMS reported 121 hospitals received one star in December, the spreadsheet published on Hospital Compare shows just 108 hospitals receiving the lowest possible quality rating. Becker's is awaiting comment from CMS about the discrepancy.

Below is a listing of the 108 hospitals that received one star from CMS in December, broken down by state, as listed in Hospital Compare.
