Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare Receives Exceptional Quality Rating

Clinton, Mo. – (June 16, 2021) Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) is pleased to announce that it received four out of five stars on the Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

CMS measures overall hospital-level quality using a star rating by providing patients with a tool to compare hospitals locally and nationwide.

To generate the star ratings, more than 100 publicly reported quality measures are divided into five groups to be scored. These measures include mortality, patient experience, readmission, safety of care and timely and effective care. Less than half of hospitals nationwide received four or more stars in the 2021 rating.

“We are delighted to receive a four out of five star rating from CMS,” said Christine Faulconer, Director of Quality and Risk at GVMH. “Our staff are dedicated to providing exceptional healthcare with friendliness and compassion. This ranking demonstrates our commitment and hard work to ensure all our patients receive high quality, personalized care.”
