Coryell Health was recently awarded a five-star rating by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
“We are honored to receive a five-star rating because it is a true reflection of our dedication to providing quality healthcare,” said Lauren Shelton MSN, RN – Chief Quality Officer. “I am exceedingly proud of the work that our physicians and team members do on an ongoing basis to ensure that the most current, evidence-based treatment protocols are in place at Coryell Health.”
“CMS utilizes a Five-Star Quality Rating System to provide the public with an easy-to-understand summary of Hospital Quality,” Shelton said. The overall quality rating is based on five areas of quality measures. All hospital systems participating in Medicare and Medicaid are rated from one star to five stars.
