MARSHALL RECEIVES 5-STAR RATING FROM MEDICARE AGENCY THE ONLY 5-STAR HOSPITAL IN THE SACRAMENTO REGION

January 31, 2018 — Congratulations are in order. Marshall Medical Center was recently given a 5-star rating – the highest possible -- by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for Overall Hospital Quality. Marshall was the only hospital in the region (from the North State to the Central Valley and to the Sierras) to receive five stars. Marshall ranks among the top 7% of hospitals in California for Overall Hospital Quality.

“The honors belong to all providers and staff for providing quality care, which translates into excellent patient outcomes,” said Marshall Chief Executive Officer, James Whipple. These outcomes, which are tracked and measured by external agencies, allow for Marshall to be compared with all hospitals in the nation. “This rating means Marshall stands among the best hospitals in the nation when it comes to quality,” adds Whipple.

CMS' Hospital Compare website reports on quality measures for more than 4,000 hospitals from around the country. The ratings are based on 7 categories, including:

  • Mortality
  • Safety of Care
  • Readmission
  • Patient Experience
  • Effectiveness of Care
  • Timeliness of Care
  • Efficient Use of Medical Imaging.
