Saint Francis Medical Center Earns High-Quality Ranking
In January 2020, Saint Francis Medical Center received a four-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Hospital Compare methodology calculates a star rating in order to easily compare overall hospital quality. Ranging from one to five stars, the rating reports on timely and effective care in key areas of quality so patients can learn how often Saint Francis and other hospitals perform recommended treatment for patients with specific conditions.
Hospital Compare lists information about the quality of care of Medicare-certified hospitals across the country. Hospital Compare provides a snapshot of the quality of hospitals by looking at overall hospital rating, general information, survey of patients’ experiences, timely and effective care, complications and deaths, unplanned hospital visits, psychiatric unit services and payment and value of care. It uses a one- to five-star scale to rank hospitals on overall quality.
