330 top hospitals for physician communication

Becker's has compiled a list of the best hospitals for physician communication in each state using Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems data from CMS.

CMS shares 10 HCAHPS star ratings based on publicly reported HCAHPS measures. The physician communication star rating combines data from three HCAHPS survey questions and summarizes how well patients feel that their physicians explained things clearly, listened carefully to them, and treated them with courtesy and respect.

The star rating is based on survey data collected from hospital patients in the calendar year 2022. The figures are from CMS' Provider Data Catalog and were released Nov. 8. Asterisks denote that CMS included a footnote about the organization's data, which are summarized below.
