Great Falls Hospital Earns 5-Star CMS Rating Hosts Open House to Celebrate New Tower

The Great Falls Clinic is pleased to announce that its hospital earned an overall 5-star rating by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Great Falls Hospital has been rated 5-stars for a third year in a row. The Great Falls Hospital is the only hospital in Great Falls and one of three hospitals in Montana that acquired a 5-star rating.

Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services conducts a yearly measurements and comparisons intended to rate acute care hospitals in the United States. Five stars is the highest rating a hospital can earn. To standardize scoring for disparate measures, CMS uses a “Z-score”: the number of standard deviations better or worse than the national average. For each measure, CMS calculates an average and standard deviation. Star Rating calculation is weighted by five measurement groups: Mortality, Safety of Care, Readmission, Patient Experience, and Timely and Effective Care.

To celebrate earning CMS 5-star rating and the completion of the newly constructed north tower, the Great Falls Hospital is hosting a public open house. The open house is available for everyone who can attend. The public open house begins at 6:15pm on October 30th with refreshments, cake, ribbon cutting, and tours.

Patients can be seen at the Great Falls Hospital at 3010, 15th Street South. To learn more, call our hospital line at (406) 216-8000.
