Awards & Recognition, Quality, In the News

Adventist Health Clear Lake Hospital has received the Overall Hospital Quality Five-Star Rating for 2022 from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the highest possible rating a hospital can achieve.

“This incredible achievement would not have been possible without the remarkable dedication and commitment of our amazing team,” said Colleen Assavapisitkul, President of Adventist Health Clear Lake. “Each member of the team was instrumental in achieving this recognition, and it truly is a testament to their devotion to provide the best possible care to our patients.”

According to CMS, the Overall Star Rating summarizes a variety of measures across five areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. The measures include Mortality, Safety, Readmission, Patient Experience and Timely & Effective Care. Each hospital has a star rating that ranges from one to five stars, with five stars signifying the highest quality.

Of the 4,500 hospitals evaluated by CMS, Adventist Health Clear Lake is the only hospital in Lake County to achieve this five-star rating. Only 14% of hospitals nationwide have earned five stars.
