OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 2, 2016) – The Oklahoma Heart Hospital (OHH) received the highest rating for quality patient care from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) last week.
OHH was among 102 U.S. hospitals (2.2 percent of hospitals) that received a five-star overall rating from CMS. This top rating is based on 64 quality measures in seven categories: timeliness of care, safety, readmissions, mortality, patient experience, effectiveness of care and efficient use of imaging. More than 4,500 hospitals were rated.
“We are honored to be among an elite group of hospitals nationwide to receive a five-star rating from CMS,” said Dr. John R. Harvey, chief executive officer and medical director of OHH. “The rating reflects our dedication to delivering high-quality, safe services to every patient we encounter, while ensuring the best patient experience possible.”
Since opening in 2002, OHH has consistently been a leader in patient satisfaction, quality, safety and technology in Oklahoma and across the nation. For the last three years, OHH has been ranked one of the top three hospitals in the nation based on patient satisfaction scores from Press Ganey Associates, Inc.
The physician owned OHH has also been ranked one of health care’s “Most Wired” hospitals across the country for the last five years based on its investment in technology; one of the top 50 cardiovascular hospitals nationwide from Truven Health Analytics; and the top hospital for surgical safety in Oklahoma from Consumer Reports.
