Editor's Note

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on July 27 updated its Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings for 2022—giving 429 hospitals a five-star rating, based on their performance across five quality categories, the July 27 Becker’s Hospital Review reports.

There also were:

  • 890 hospitals that received a four-star rating
  • 890 hospitals that received a three-star rating
  • 692 hospitals that received a two-star rating
  • 192 hospitals that received a one-star rating.

Star ratings, a tool meant to compare hospital quality and performance are typically updated and released quarterly. Because of a calculation error in measure results used for CY 2021, the update is being released this month instead of April.
