Highest designation from CMS places ROPH in top seven percent of hospitals nationwide
(Jan. 30, 2020) Rush Oak Park Hospital has earned five stars in a national rating of quality and patient experience from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Five stars is the highest designation from CMS, and puts Rush Oak Park Hospital, along with Rush University Medical Center, who also received five stars, in the top seven percent of hospitals nationwide.
The CMS designation is widely considered a key indicator of quality, along with other measures like Leapfrog ratings and Magnet status. Rush Oak Park Hospital has consistently received an A grade in patient safety from the Leapfrog Group, a non-profit health care watchdog organization. Recently, the hospital was recognized as a Top Teaching Hospital, one of only 55 in the country, from the Leapfrog Group. Along with our system partners, Rush University Medical Center and Rush Copley Medical Center, we have been designated with Magnet status, the most prestigious honor a health care organization can achieve for nursing excellence.
“Delivering the highest quality of patient care has always been a priority at Rush Oak Park Hospital,” said Bruce Elegant, president and CEO of the hospital. “Earning a five star rating from CMS is recognition of the excellent care we provide for our patients on a daily basis.”
The CMS ratings are based off data on mortality; readmissions; safety, effectiveness and timeliness of care; and patient experience. For more information about CMS ratings and the methodology, visit, CMS’s Hospital Compare website.
