Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital receives West Virginia’s only CMS 5-Star Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating

WESTON, W.Va. – Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital is proud to announce that they have received a 5-Star Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating for 2022 from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The facility is the only hospital in West Virginia to receive this designation.

Of the more than 3,000 hospitals measured, only 455 hospitals achieved a five-star rating. Hospitals are rated by CMS on a scale of one to five stars, with five being the highest and three being the most common.

“Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital is extremely honored to be recognized as a five-star rated facility by CMS,” said Carole Norton, Chief Nursing Officer at Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital. “This recognition allows patients and families to understand that when they come to our facility, they are receiving care at a safe, patient-centered hospital. Our low harm scores and high patient satisfaction scores are something we are very proud of.”

The hospital rating is based on data measuring five aspects of quality of care including mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience and timely and effective care as reported by CMS’ Hospital Compare tool.

Medicare developed its Star Rating system to give people with Medicare an objective measure of a plan’s performance. The rating system gives people a way to consider quality as well as cost as they make their enrollment decisions.

The hospital has also been recently recognized with West Virginia’s highest Spring 2022 Hospital Safety Grade by The Leapfrog Group, which Mon Health Medical Center also received. They were named a National Top 100 Safety Net Hospital by the Lowns Group.
