Press Release

Zanesville, Ohio (Aug. 12, 2019) – Genesis Hospital has earned a third consecutive 4-Star rating for Overall Hospital Quality from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Twenty-seven percent of the nation’s hospitals are rated 4-Stars; only 6% have a 5-Star rating.

“A third consecutive 4-Star rating illustrates the dedication of delivering quality care to our patients,” said Daniel Scheerer, M.D., chief medical affairs officer, Genesis HealthCare System. “We are pleased that our commitment to excellent patient care and safety has been recognized by CMS and the results of their assessments are transparent.”

The CMS Star Rating System uses statistically sound methodology to collect and score information from a wide variety of sources. It is designed to help consumers compare hospitals in an easy, understandable way.

The ratings are based on publicly reported data on more than 50 measures across seven aspects in quality of care including: Safety of Care, Readmission, Patient Experience, Mortality, Effectiveness of Care, Timeliness of Care and Efficient Use of Medical Imaging. The Star Rating System is reported on the CMS Hospital Compare website.
