February 4, 2020, HENDERSONVILLE, NC – AdventHealth Hendersonville is honored to announce it has received national recognition for an overall five-star rating in quality from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the latest hospital performance report released by the federal agency.

Of the more than 4,500 hospitals evaluated by CMS, only 407 received five-star ratings. This recognition is the highest rating of overall quality and places AdventHealth Hendersonville in the top 8.87 percent nationally for quality and patient safety.
