Schneck Medical Center Receives Back-to-Back Five Star Quality Rating
October 21, 2016
This month, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its most recent quality rating for hospitals. Schneck Medical Center was among the top three percent of hospitals nationwide.
 
For the second time, Schneck achieved a five-star rating—the highest possible rating for quality of care, customer experience, and value of care received.
 
Schneck was also one of only 112 hospitals nationwide to receive this distinction, and one of only nine in Indiana, including: Franciscan St. Francis, Mooresville; IU Health West, Avon; Memorial Hospital & Health Center, Jasper; OrthoIndy, Indianapolis; Orthopaedic Hospital at Parkview North, Ft. Wayne; St. Catherine Hospital, East Chicago; St. Vincent, Carmel; and, The Orthopaedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network, Ft. Wayne.
 
“This distinction is a testament to staff and their continued focus on quality care for our patients and community,” said Warren Forgey, President/CEO of Schneck. “Schneck continually strives for excellence, always pursuing and implementing the industry’s best practices.”
 
The report, available on the Hospital Compare website, reflects comprehensive quality of care in our nation’s hospitals.
 
The assessment comes from a hospital rating system based on 64 quality measures—ranging from one to five stars—and shows how well each hospital performs, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S. The more stars, the better a hospital performs with the most common overall rating being three stars.
