For the third consecutive year, St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center®, a member of Catholic Health, has earned a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for excellent medical care and consistently high patient satisfaction scores.
“St. Francis Hospital is honored to once again be recognized for our commitment to providing high quality and safe patient care,” said President of St. Francis Hospital and Heart Center® Charles L. Lucore, MD, MBA. “This award directly reflects the hard work of our physicians, nurses, and all staff, as well as the excellence in care that they provide.”
The CMS rankings, which are posted on the government’s “Care Compare” website, provide consumers with information on how well hospitals and other facilities deliver care to patients and encourages health care facilities to make continued improvements in care quality. Care Compare reports information on more than 100 quality measures for more than 4,000 hospitals nationwide and allows consumers to compare hospital performance across many conditions.
St. Francis Hospital and Heart Center® has consistently been recognized as one of the safest hospitals in the country and is the only hospital on Long Island to have both a five-star rating from CMS and Leapfrog “A” ratings. U.S. News & World Report also recently ranked St. Francis one of the best hospitals in the nation in five adult specialties: Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Gastroenterology and GI Surgery, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Geriatrics, and Orthopedic Surgery. In these five specialties, St. Francis ranks in the top 1% nationally.
