Five-Star Rating for Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse
Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse earned the highest five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of their Hospital Compareprogram.
Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Phoenix and Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire and Austin-Albert Lea also received the exemplary distinction. Nationwide, only 293 of 3,724 hospitals earned the top rating.
CMS weighed each hospital's average score in seven quality categories: mortality, safety of care, readmissions, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care, and efficient use of medical imaging.
“A five-star ranking is truly a distinct honor and a testament to the work we put in every day to ensure our patients receive the best care possible,” says Paul Mueller, M.D., Regional Vice President.
