Wisconsin also boasts the fourth-highest percentage of five-star-rated hospitals across the country including Stoughton Hospital
According to the recently released Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Stoughton Hospital has a five-star rating. Wisconsin hospitals top the national average having the fourth-most five-star rated hospitals in the country. The ratings reflect 46 measures across five categories of quality: mortality; safety of care; readmissions; patient experience; and timely and effective care.
“Wisconsin is fortunate to have some of the best hospitals in the nation, delivering high-quality health care to patients and their families every day,” said Eric Borgerding, Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) President and CEO. “Our hospitals continuously work to improve the quality of care they deliver – constantly adapting and improving outcomes along the way – which is clearly demonstrated by CMS’ latest quality ratings.”
“I’m immensely proud of the work not only Stoughton Hospital, but all of Wisconsin’s hospitals and health systems are doing to keep pushing to deliver the highest possible quality care,” said Dan DeGroot, Stoughton Health’s President/CEO. “The work we do isn’t for the recognition – it’s for the patients – but these CMS Star Ratings confirm that we’re on the right track.”
