Press Release from Cameron Memorial Community Hospital
ANGOLA – Cameron Memorial Community Hospital announced today that it has been recognized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as both a five-star hospital for quality and patient safety, and for patient experience.
Cameron is one of only two hospitals in the state of Indiana to receive five-star ratings in both categories and one of only 14 to receive a five-star for quality. Nationwide, only 15 percent of hospitals received a five-star quality rating.
The CMS Five-Star Quality Rating System is a nationally recognized benchmark that rates hospitals on a scale of 1 to 5 in five areas of quality, mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, and timely and effective care.
CMS weighs the five individual ratings to give a rating that reflects the hospital’s overall performance on Care Compare quality measures. Achieving a five-star rating is an exceptional accomplishment, highlighting Cameron Memorial Community Hospital’s commitment to excellence in healthcare.
High quality care and excellent patient experience is a top focus at Cameron because it helps promote improved health outcomes and satisfaction. When patients have a positive experience, they build trust in their caregivers and their loyalty and engagement in their own care and well-being increases.
Cameron is pleased to have received both five-star ratings reinforcing that the organization is meeting and exceeding the patients' expectations, which is a fundamental goal for any healthcare organization dedicated to providing high-quality care.
“At Cameron Memorial Community Hospital, our vision has always been to provide high quality, innovative and individualized care to our patients, and we are honored to receive this reputable five-star rating from CMS," said Angie Logan, CEO at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital. “Cameron is proud to be one of two hospitals in the state to have both a five-star overall rating as well as five-stars in patient experience.”
