MGH Named 5-star Hospital by Federal Agency

Today Marion General Hospital (MGH) was named a 5-star hospital by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a federal agency located within the United States Department of Health and Human Services. MGH is ranked in the top 8 percent of hospitals statewide and 7 percent for hospitals nationwide.

“The 5-star CMS rating is a direct indication of the high-quality care provided by our medical providers and staff at MGH. This is another validation of our strong commitment to provide quality healthcare to our community,” said Stephanie Hilton-Siebert, CEO and President of Marion General Hospital.

CMS’ star rating system, launched in 2016, assigns stars based on 48 measures in the following five categories: mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, and timely and effective care. Here is a breakdown of the updated star ratings for hospitals nationwide:

  • One-star: 204 hospitals
  • Two-stars: 690
  • Three-stars: 1,018
  • Four-stars: 988
  • Five-stars: 455

MGH prides itself on offering top-quality care to the community and continually receives awards and designations for its level of care. In December MGH received a Leapfrog “A” rating for safety.
