Denver, CO, – Rose Medical Center has again earned the prestigious five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Hospital Compare Program.
CMS is a federal agency that regulates and oversees the nation’s hospitals. It is tasked with ensuring patients across the nation have better care, access to coverage and improved health. One of its tools is a star-rating system to help patients and caregivers find the best care institutions.When the rating system was created in 2018, Rose was among the first hospitals in Colorado to receive this recognition. The hospital again earned five stars in 2019 and now has maintained this level of excellence for the third year in a row in 2020. In short, this rating means that Rose has been carefully evaluated and deemed above average in quality and care.
“Throughout every department, across every discipline and type of responsibility, our team is unilaterally dedicated to the health and safety of each patient, " said Andrew Weinfeld, MD, chief medical officer at Rose Medical Center.
Adds Ryan Tobin, Rose Medical Center president and chief executive officer, "We are grateful that CMS has provided this user-friendly system to help patients identify hospitals that are providing this level of care—the type of care we are honored to provide our patients every day.”
CMS' Hospital Compare website reports on quality for more than 4,000 hospitals nationwide. The program evaluates hospitals on a variety of measures to calculate the star rating. Seven of the key quality measures include mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care and efficient use of medical imaging.
