Penrose-St. Francis Health Services earns Five-Star Quality Rating from CMS

(COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.) Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded Penrose-St. Francis Health Services the health system’s first Five-Star Quality Rating.

CMS reports on quality measures for more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide - Penrose-St. Francis is one of 293 hospitals that received a perfect Five-Star Quality Rating, placing Penrose-St. Francis in the top five percent of all rated hospitals.

Penrose-St. Francis is one of six top-rated hospitals in all of Colorado and the only health system in southern Colorado to earn this distinguished rating. Receiving this five-star rating for quality is proof of the relentless commitment by every caregiver at Penrose-St. Francis to pursue excellence in every aspect of whole person care.

Our sister hospital, Mercy Regional Medical Center (MRMC), was also recognized with a five-star rating for the fourth consecutive time. Receiving five-star ratings for excellent quality is proof of the relentless commitment by every caregiver at Penrose-St. Francis to pursue excellence in every aspect of whole person care.

The overall hospital quality star ratings are based on a variety of measures from seven categories, including mortality, safety of care, re-admissions, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care and efficient use of medical imaging.

The CMS Five-Star Quality Rating is an evaluation system that helps patients, families and caregivers compare healthcare facilities more effectively by giving each facility a rating between one and five stars on its combined performance in health inspections, staffing levels and quality measures.
