Atmore (AL) - Atmore Community Hospital (ACH) leads lower Alabama, receives a Four-Star Rating from the centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of its 2022 Five-Star Quality Rating System, which were announced in late July. The overall star ratings measure quality of care and include mortality rates, safety of care, readmission rates, patient experience, and timely/effective care.
"This really goes to show that exceptional care is being given right here in Atmore, AL despite having fewer resources than some of the larger systems in the area." stated Brad Lowery, Hospital Administrator. "To have the highest rating of all of the hospitals in the lower Alabama area when it comes to quality measures shows a commitment of the ACH staff to the patients and to this community that is leading the charge. This team is truly engaged in offering a high level of care and that starts with our physician staff and our clinical leadership."
The CMS overall star ratings are updated annually and are public information. These ratings can be viewed at https://www.medicare.gov/care-compare/. CMS uses these objective measures in an attempt to give the public information on how hospitals are performing from a quality standpoint in order to make more informed decisions on care.
"Our team should be proud of themselves." said Suzanne McGill, Director of Nursing. "They continue to prioritize quality care for our patients and I believe that is evident from the 2022 CMS overall star rating. This is our community and our managers and their teams take pride in making sure our patients receive the best care possible here at home."
ACH continues to work to improve patient care and satisfaction with every patient visit. ACH has continued adding additional UAB eMedicine Services, new hospital monitoring systems, imaging equipment and other patient room upgrades to enhance comfort and quality. Quality patient care is at the forefront of every patient visit and will continue to be ACH's top priority.
