Adventist Health St. Helena Has Once Again Earned a Five-Star Rating

News, Awards & Recognition

Adventist Health St. Helena has once again earned a five-star rating, the highest-possible, through the Overall Hospital Star Ratings program by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

This award represents a leading resource consumers use to determine where they’ll seek care. When compared to other hospitals – in the North Bay area, California and across the nation – Adventist Health St. Helena ranks among the very best. Of the 4,500 hospitals evaluated by CMS, Adventist Health St. Helena is the only hospital in Napa County to achieve this five-star rating. Only 14% of hospitals nationwide and in California have earned five stars.

​“We achieved this recognition by providing the best possible care to our patients, while ensuring they are cared for in a safe and compassionate environment,” says Dr. Steven Herber, Adventist Health St. Helena president. “Realizing this goal, is a tribute to our dedicated staff and their concern for the well-being of the community.”


The federal agency for their CMS Overall Star Rating, assigns 1-5 stars based on a hospital’s performance across five quality performance areas: mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience and timeliness and effectiveness of care.

We are grateful for our specialists and staff for their work in attaining this accomplishment, which was made possible through dedication to those they serve.
