Canyon Vista Medical Center Earns 4-star CMS Rating for Overall Hospital Quality
August 3, 2022
(Sierra Vista, AZ – August 03, 2022) – Canyon Vista Medical Center (CVMC), today announced that it has been awarded four stars in the latest round of Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
This year’s rating is an improvement on last year’s 3-star rating and shows consistent improvement in patient safety and quality of care. CMS looks at multiple measures and quality reporting when generating the yearly star rating, some of which are healthcare associated infections (HAI), timely and effective care, comprehensive care for joint replacement (CJR) model and payment and value of care.
“Our team works to constantly evaluate and improve the care and experiences we provide our patients and their families,” Canyon Vista Medical Center CNO Cosette Britton said. “We are so proud to have received this recognition from CMS and look forward to continuing our efforts to enhance healthcare delivery and advance our mission of Making Communities Healthier.”
The Star Ratings program is designed to increase healthcare transparency and help patients and their family members make informed decisions about healthcare. CMS’ Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings measure hospitals based on their performance across five quality areas: mortality, patient experience, readmissions, safety of care and timeliness and effectiveness of care.
“This 4-star recognition from CMS is among the best in our region for hospitals of any size, which is a testament to our great team at CVMC and gives assurance that our community is receiving great care right here at home,” Canyon Vista Medical Center CEO Shaun Phillips said. “We thank our providers, clinical teams and staff for their commitment to our patients and to one another. It is their dedication that made this four-star rating possible and that will continue to drive our quality improvement initiatives going forward.”
