Edinburg, TX – Report cards are out for the nation’s hospitals, and DHR Health has achieved a four-star rating in overall patient care from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The overall star rating establishes that DHR Health has met the quality standards for a variety of identified measures, compared to other hospitals in the U.S. The more stars a hospital receives, the better the hospital performed on quality measures. To receive this rating, DHR Health was analyzed across five health-care outcomes, including timeliness and effectiveness of care, mortality, safety of care, readmission rates, and patient experience.
“We are extremely proud that we have received a four-star rating and glad that our community can make the best choice for their care based on this achievement,” said Carlos Cardenas, MD, chairman of board, chief administrative officer at DHR Health. ”The intent of CMS star ratings is to provide patients and families with the tools to evaluate the quality of care we provide and choose where they want to receive their care.”
CMS hospital rankings are considered among the best hospital report cards to help inform the public where to receive quality medical care. DHR Health is among 4,586 hospitals ranked in overall hospital quality across the nation and 463 hospitals across Texas, of which only 84 received four-star ratings. CMS publicly reports hospitals on overall star ratings that include a variety of more than 100 measures. This rating recognizes DHRHealth for exceptional treatment for heart attacks, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgery.
DHR Health prioritizes offering the highest standards in patient care and remains committed to delivering the best possible service in the Rio Grande Valley. In an evolving health-care environment, the ratings acknowledge DHR Health for its dedication to the community. Understanding treatment options is important, as star ratings can help individuals distinguish between hospitals locally and nationally for quality, such as infection and complication rates and patient experience.
