HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland has received a five-star rating for patient experience from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the top score in the federal agency’s ratings system.  

The score is based on a summary of the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey, which assesses patient experiences.  CMS’s star rating system scores hospitals on a one-to-five-star scale based on 10 publicly reported measures. The HCAHPS survey’s 29 questions cover these areas:

  • Nurse communication
  • Doctor communication
  • Responsiveness of hospital staff
  • Communication about medicines
  • Discharge information
  • Care transition
  • Cleanliness of hospital environment
  • Quietness of hospital environment
  • Hospital rating
  • Willingness to recommend hospital

HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital President and CEO John Ludwig shared, “This achievement is a reflection of the dedication of our colleagues in making each and every patient feel cared for and respected. Year after year, our patients have consistently given us a high rating on their experience with us. We will continue providing exceptional care to those who entrust us with their care.”
