(AUGUST 16, 2023) For the third consecutive year, UVM Medical Center and UVM Health Network–Porter Medical Center have earned a 5-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which announced its annual hospital ratings in late July, according to the Barre–Montpelier Times Argus.
The ratings are based on more than 45 quality measures over five categories: safety of care, readmissions after treatment of common conditions, patient experience, mortality, and timely and effective care. CMS reviewed data from the 2021 and 2022 calendar years for the ranking determinations.
