LEAWOOD, Kan., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nueterra, the largest privately-held healthcare organization in the U.S. specializing in developing equity partnerships with health systems, governments, hospitals and physicians, is proud to announce that two of its partnering facilities have been designated as Five-Star hospitals by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Rothman Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital and Physicians Care Surgical Hospital were chosen as Five-Star recipients from CMS as a result of their exemplary patient satisfaction scores, dedicated staff and best-in-class patient experience yielding favorable results.
"Nueterra is proud to be associated with these hospitals because of their unparalleled, patient-centric approach to healthcare," said Dan Tasset, chairman. "They exemplify what the patient experience should be by ensuring that every patient receives excellent care at all times."
Of the nearly 3,500 hospitals that were awarded a star rating from the CMS, only 207 were designated as Five-Star recipients. To constitute a hospital's rating, CMS ranks 11 categories from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), a survey ranking numerous sets of hospital criteria based off patients' perceptions of their hospital experience.
"We're honored to be distinguished as a Five-Star hospital by the CMS," said Kelly Doyle, CEO of Rothman Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital. "This rating speaks to our entire team and how we embrace each patient as individual and unique."
The results, compiled from the reporting period of January 1 to December 31 of 2014, assess every aspect of the patient experience. Additionally, a hospital must have at least 100 completed surveys in the designated four-quarter period and must be eligible for public reporting of HCAHPS measures in order to be called a Five-Star hospital.
"By listening to our patients' feedback and establishing a positive rapport within our community, the entire team at Physicians Care is dedicated to providing the best healthcare experience possible to anyone that walks through our doors," said Chris Doyle, CEO of Physicians Care Surgical Hospital.
Both Rothman Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital and Physicians Care are multi-specialty surgical hospitals located in Pennsylvania and the only two hospitals in Pennsylvania to receive this designation.
