CMS Compare

EvergreenHealth Medical Center earned a 5-star rating in the 2020 Hospital Compare overall quality systems rankings conducted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

EvergreenHealth was one of just 407 hospitals nationwide to  receive the 5-star designation

Achieving a five-star rating represents EvergreenHealth’s high scores across a range of quality measures.

CMS’ Hospital Compare tool evaluates quality measures in seven key areas to calculate overall ratings for qualifying hospitals, including:

  • patient outcomes data such as mortality, safety of care, readmission
  • efficient use of medical imaging
  • direct patient feedback on patient experience, effectiveness and timeliness of care

The overall hospital rating ranges from one to five stars, with more stars reflecting higher performance.

Hospital Compare's aim is to help improve hospitals’ quality of care through easy-to-understand data on hospital performance, and quality information from patient perspectives.
