Brodstone Memorial Hospital Receives 5 Star Recognition in Patient Experience
It’s been an award winning year for Brodstone Memorial Hospital (BMH). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced its newest ratings for Patient Experience with Brodstone making the list as a 5 Star Rated Hospital. CMS’ summary star rating scored 3,478 hospitals on a one-to-five-star scale based on the ten publicly reported measures in the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey. This newest rating lands Brodstone as one of 266 hospitals, in the top 8% of all hospital sizes in the nation, and one of nine in the State of Nebraska to receive this prestigious 5 Star Rating.
At the beginning of 2020, CMS announced it’s 5 Star Rated Hospitals in Quality with Brodstone making the list as well. This makes for a Double 5 Star Rating on the year. Brodstone is one of just two facilities, all sizes, in the State of Nebraska that received both 5 Stars in Quality and Patient Experience from CMS. The facility is also the only hospital in the state that has received a Double 5 Star Rating and a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital national recognition this year – a remarkable feat and display of values and standards of excellence for rural healthcare.
“This is a tremendous award and demonstrates the care that is provided here at Brodstone on a daily basis. I am so proud of each and every one of you for the hard work and dedication to providing the highest quality of care there is. Please take a second to celebrate each other. This is something that is rare and needs to be celebrated! Without you, we couldn’t provide Double 5 Star, Superior Care Close to Home.” added Treg Vyzourek, BMH CEO, last week when announcing to staff. “We are truly blessed to have such a great team who works tirelessly to make sure our communities receive the highest quality of care possible!” he wrote to Brodstone Memorial Hospital Board of Managing Trustees on Monday.
