The 293 hospitals with 5 stars from CMS

CMS updated its Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings in February, recognizing 293 hospitals with five stars.

CMS' Hospital Compare website reports on quality measures for more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide. Here is a breakdown of the updated star ratings:

  • One star: 282 hospitals
  • Two stars: 800 hospitals
  • Three stars: 1,264 hospitals
  • Four stars: 1,086 hospitals
  • Five stars: 293 hospitals

The new star ratings come eight months after CMS postponed its July 2018 update for the second consecutive year due to methodology changes. The updated methodology includes removal of measures with statistically negative loadings and a change to how hospital-acquired infection measures are calculated.

Below is a listing of CMS' five-star hospitals for February, broken down by state, as listed on the Hospital Compare website. To view a list of CMS' 1-star hospitals for February, click here.
