Montrose Memorial Hospital Scores 4 Stars

Montrose Memorial Hospital (MMH) is a 4-star hospital according to the latest Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) report.  The HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) is a national survey that asks patients about their experiences during a recent hospital stay.  The results are then publicly reported at www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov.

Over 3,500 hospitals in the United States were ranked from 1 to 5 stars. The ranking is generated by a national survey called HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) which is administered to random adult patients following discharge from the hospital. The survey is not limited to patients who are Medicare beneficiaries. Hospitals publicly report patients’ ratings on 11 measures including communication about medicines, doctor communication, discharge information, hospital cleanliness, overall hospital rating and more. The star rating is an average of the 11 public measures.

Steve Hannah, CEO at Montrose Memorial said; “It’s important to look at several factors when making decision about your healthcare.  Patient experience is one aspect of quality care and we are proud of our consistently high ratings.”

Other regional hospitals ranked include Gunnison Valley Hospital (4 stars), Delta County Memorial Hospital (3 stars) and Community Hospital in Grand Junction (3 stars).
