Star Valley Health has earned a 4-Star rating for Overall Hospital Quality from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Star Valley Health is the only Critical Access Care hospital in our region to be rated with 4 stars.
“Achieving a 4-Star rating validates the efforts of our entire healthcare team who focus on continually improving the quality of care we provide for our patients,” said Daniel Ordyna, the new Chief Executive Officer. “This transparent assessment from CMS is a signal to our community that we are a high-quality healthcare system with a dedication to excellent patient care and safety.” Ordyna is a proven quality and patient safety champion. He has previously increased a teaching hospital’s CMS rating and aligned physician practices to help Medicare Advantage products.
The CMS Star Rating System uses statistically sound methodology to collect and score information from a wide variety of sources. It is designed to help consumers compare hospitals in an easy, understandable way.
The ratings are based on publicly reported data on more than 50 measures across seven aspects in quality of care including: Safety of Care, Re-admission, Patient Experience, Mortality, Effectiveness of Care, Timeliness of Care and Efficient Use of Medical Imaging. The Star Rating System is reported on the CMS Hospital Compare website.
