Awards and Recognitions
Saint John Hospital has received the coveted five-star rating from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The star award is given based on metrics such as mortality, readmission, patient safety and patient experience. Saint John was one of only 10 in the state of Kansas to receive the five-star recognition. Along with data on quality measures, CMS also publicly released scores grading hospitals on how closely they follow guidelines for treating severe sepsis and septic shock recently. Saint John Hospital has received a 100% score, when the national average is 49% and the Kansas average is 52%.
Saint John has also achieved 5 stars for its performance in Treatment of Sepsis from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This achievement is part of new findings and data released today by Healthgrades and featured in the
Healthgrades 2018 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals regionally and nationally.
Saint John is a part of the Prime Healthcare Services family (www.primehealthcare.com). Prime Healthcare has been recognized as one of the “15 Top Health Systems” in the nation three times by Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters).
