Saint Joseph Mount Sterling Receives Five-Star Rating From Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for Second Consecutive Year


MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (Aug. 8, 2022) – Saint Joseph Mount Sterling is among 429 facilities nationwide and four hospitals in Kentucky to receive a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of its Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings for 2022. This is the second consecutive year the hospital has received this recognition.

CMS assigns star ratings to more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide based on their performance across seven areas of quality, including safety of care, readmission, mortality, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care and efficient use of medical imaging.

“We are extremely proud of our employees and medical professionals who put forth their best effort daily to provide high quality care for all our patients,” said Jennifer Nolan, president, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling. “Their commitment to quality patient care is the reason we are receiving this notable recognition for our hospital’s performance two years in a row.”

The goal of the Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating program is to improve the usability, accessibility and interpretability of CMS’s hospital quality website, Hospital Care, for patients and consumers. According to CMS, the star ratings make it easier for consumers to choose a hospital and understand the quality of care they deliver.

The overall rating from Hospital Compare ranges from one to five stars, with a five-star rating being the highest a hospital can receive. The overall rating summarizes up to 57 quality measures reflecting common conditions that hospitals treat, such as heart attacks or pneumonia. The overall rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the United States.

The Hospital Compare star ratings are based on data hospitals provide to CMS through the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program and the Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) Program.

In 2022:        

  • 192 hospitals received a one-star rating
  • 692 hospitals received a two-star rating
  • 890 hospitals received a three-star rating
  • 890 received a four-star rating
  • 429 received a five-star rating
