Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital receives highest 5-star rating for quality care from Hospital Compare
Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital has received a 5-star overall rating – the highest possible rating – for exceptional quality of care from the U.S. Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services Hospital Compare ratings system.
The Hospital Compare system evaluates hospitals’ quality of care and service using 57 quality measures in seven main categories: mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care, efficient use of medical imaging and unplanned hospital visits. Five stars is the highest possible rating a hospital can receive. The most common overall rating is 3 stars.
“To receive a 5-star rating from Hospital Compare is a tremendous achievement, and it would not be possible without the dedication of our doctors and employees, who are committed to providing exceptional care and service to our patients and to this community," said Keith Barber, CEO of Houston Methodist Hospital Willowbrook and senior vice president of Houston Methodist.
Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is one of only seven Houston-area hospitals to receive a perfect 5-star rating by Hospital Compare. Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center also received a 5-star rating.
“This rating means that Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital not only stands among the best hospitals in Houston when it comes to quality of care and service, but also the best in the nation,” said Barber.
Hospital Compare has information about more than 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals across the U.S. The site was created through the efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in collaboration with organizations representing consumers, hospitals, doctors, employers, accrediting organizations and other federal agencies.
