We are proud to announce that Arkansas Heart Hospital received the prestigious Five-Star Overall Hospital rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
This organization rates more than 4,500 hospitals throughout the United States. As one of only two hospitals in Arkansas – and one of only 293 in the nation – to earn this distinction, we are proud to be recognized for our commitment to outstanding patient care.
How Ratings Work
The star rating system incorporates data from a wide variety of quality measures, including safety, patient experience and other patient outcomes. Similar measures are grouped together into one of seven areas, and each of these groups is given a score. Weighted group scores are used to calculate a summary score, which determines the hospital star rating.
