Henry Mayo Earns 4-Star Rating
The United States Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services publishes ratings for 80% of U.S. hospitals on a website called Hospital Compare. Hospitals are given a rating of from one to five stars, with five being best. The overall rating summarizes up to 57 quality measures reflecting common conditions that hospitals treat, such as heart attacks or pneumonia. Hospitals may perform more complex services or procedures not reflected in the measures on Hospital Compare. The overall rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S. The more stars, the better a hospital performed on the quality measures.
The most common overall rating received by hospitals is three stars. We are very proud to announce that, for the first time, Henry Mayo has been designated as a four-star hospital, after historically receiving a three-star rating. There are no other hospitals within a 20-mile radius of Santa Clarita that have a ranking higher than three stars.
“This is a significant accomplishment and a great testament to our employees and our medical staff,” said Roger E. Seaver, President and CEO at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital. “Our community deserves great care. We will use this award to redouble our efforts to make Henry Mayo the highest-quality hospital in California.”
