CHI Health Good Samaritan gets 5 stars from CMS
KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - CHI Health Good Samaritan received the highest achievement possible from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
For the second year in a row, the Kearney hospital received five stars in the Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings.
On July 278, CMS updated its Care Compare website with the new rating system.
Good Sam was one of only six acute care hospitals in the state, and the only one west of Lincoln, to get five stars.
The Overall Star Ratings is designed to assist patients, consumers and others in comparing hospitals side-by-side. The more stars, the better the hospital performs on the quality measures including mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience and timely and effective care.
The update is the second since the agency overhauled the ratings’ methodology in 2020.
