One of our biggest achievements this summer was earning a 4 star rating from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid!
These ratings are determined by collecting data on several quality measures and by the scores indicated on the surveys our patients complete after they receive in patient care. Hospitals are also compared to each other to help determine their score.
Historically Southwest Memorial Hospital has received a 3 star rating, as do most hospitals in the county. We are very proud of our score increase and we plan to work hard to keep it, while working towards being a 5 star facility!
I want to take this opportunity to thank our nursing and ancillary care staff for all their hard work. Without your commitment to your community, our patients and this organization we could not be successful.
I’d also thank you, the public and our patients. We know that every interaction from having your IV started to having your lunch tray delivered matters. We are working hard to be the best health system, providing the highest quality of safe and reliable care to you and your families.
