The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently rated Titusville Area Hospital (TAH) as a five-star hospital for overall quality of care. TAH was one of 455 five-star hospitals in the country and one of 22 five-star hospitals in Pennsylvania.
“TAH is committed to providing the highest level of patient care. Quality, safety, and satisfaction are a top priority. We continually review and update processes to ensure our team is able to provide exceptional care,” stated Lee Clinton, CEO of TAH.
CMS’s star rating system, launched in 2016, assigns stars based on 48 measures in the following five categories: mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, and timely and effective care. This differs from CMS’s previous method, which included 65 measures across seven groups. CMS last updated its star rating in January 2020.
“We are very proud to be ranked by CMS among the top 13% in the United States according to the star rating program. The ability to share safety and quality data publically is essential to ensure patients and families can make informed decisions about their healthcare. CMS is one of a number of organizations that ranks hospitals based on quality measures.
