AdventHealth Shawnee Mission Earns Five Stars in Updated CMS Quality Ratings

AdventHealth Shawnee Mission again earned five stars from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings for July 2022. AdventHealth Shawnee Mission is one of only six hospitals in Kansas and one of five in the Kansas City metro area to earn the highest possible rating. Only 429 hospitals out of the more than 4,500 U.S. hospitals surveyed earned five stars.

The Overall Hospital Quality Star rating (overall star rating) summarizes a variety of measures across five areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. The overall hospital rating for 2022 is based on five measures: Mortality, Safety, Readmission, Patient Experience and Timely & Effective Care.

“In July 2022, AdventHealth Shawnee Mission earned another five-star CMS rating and was named the fourth best large community hospital in the U.S. by the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® list,” said Lisa Hays, MD, Chief Medical Officer for AdventHealth Shawnee Mission. “These honors are a testament to our team members and physicians, and we are incredibly proud of their continued dedication to exceptional patient care, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

CMS first revealed an overall star rating for hospitals in July 2016. The rating allows consumers to compare individual hospitals to others locally and nationwide. While patients are encouraged to seek the nearest hospital in case of an emergency, Hospital Compare provides a place for those who can plan for their care to research their options.
