Chester County Hospital has always embraced a pursuit for quality. In fact we live it every day. Year over year, we evaluate, measure and compare our efforts to our regional and national peers to gauge our effectiveness in delivering the highest quality of care in a manner that is safe and cost effective.
And so it is with great pride to share that Chester County Hospital has been ranked 6th in the Philadelphia region and 12th in the state by U.S. News & World Report. The magazine placed Penn Medicine among the top 10 hospitals in the nation and #1 in Pennsylvania, achieving Honor Roll status and top rankings in 11 clinical specialties.
U.S. News rankings recognize hospitals for outstanding quality, expertise, technology and experience.
Chester County Hospital is also among the top two percent of hospitals nationwide to receive a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The new Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating methodology takes 64 existing quality measures already reported on the CMS Hospital Compare website and summarizes them into a unified rating of one to five stars.
To know that all of the efforts we have put in place to ensure that our patients receive high quality care and a positive patient experience have been recognized by CMS and U.S. News and World Report, is a tribute to all who work at the hospital and a commitment to those who walk through our doors.
