In both 2016 and 2017, Chester County Hospital was awarded a Five-Star Rating - the highest possible score - by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In 2017, only twelve Pennsylvania hospitals were given a five-star rating from CMS. Chester County Hospital tops the list and is one of just two hospitals in the county to receive the prestigious ranking.
Published by CMS, the assessments are designed to help consumers compare hospitals at more than 4,000 facilities nationwide. Only nine percent of eligible hospitals in the United States received the esteemed grade in 2017. The national CMS rating average is three out of five stars.
“The consecutive five-star ratings from CMS place Chester County Hospital in an elite group of health care facilities,” explained Michael J. Duncan, president and CEO. “The high scoring evaluation is a tribute to our care teams, medical staff and nurses who put patient safety and quality at the forefront of care.”
