CMS Awards Whittier Hospital Medical Center Five Stars for Quality

WHITTIER, Calif. [August 4, 2022] Whittier Hospital Medical Center has received a five-star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the highest rating approved by the federal agency and the only hospital to receive the prestigious rating in Whittier.

Whittier Hospital is among just 13.81% of hospitals nationwide to receive Five Stars—the highest possible score—out of more than 4,586 Medicare-certified hospitals rated. The overall star rating is based on how well a hospital performs across different areas of quality, such as treating heart attacks and pneumonia, readmission rates, and safety of care.

“We are grateful to our doctors, nurses, and the entire staff for their commitment to make our communities healthy and safe. It is because of their perseverance and dedication to excellence that we received this exceptional national rating.” Said Mary Anne Monje, Chief Executive Officer. “At Whittier Hospital we will continue to provide our patients the high quality and compassionate care they deserve”.

The rankings were based on Care Compare, a program managed by the federal CMS. CMS analyzes information on all hospitals enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid and gives a rating according to their standards.
