Five OSF HealthCare facilities have received 4-star ratings from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
“Our Mission Partners take pride in providing safe, high-quality care to the communities we are called to serve,” stated Stacy Neill, Director of Quality for OSF HealthCare’s northern region. “This four-star rating from CMS proves the quality of care we provide is nationally-recognized to be above average.”
The hospitals recognized include:

- OSF HealthCare Saint James – John W. Albrecht Medical Center in Pontiac, IL

The ratings are available publicly through the Hospital Compare website, www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare, which contains information about the quality of care at over 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals across the country.
“Our 4-Star rating is a rewarding reflection of the work of our Mission Partners, and the exceptional care they provide for those we serve,” said Dave Lord, President of OSF St. Francis Hospital, “being a hospital our community can count of for quality care is most important to us.”
“As the complexity of healthcare continues to evolve, it’s important that consumers have resources to evaluate the quality of facilities in their area,” agreed Brad Solberg, President of OSF HealthCare Saint James. “Our 4-star rating is indicative of the team effort our OSF Mission Partners have put forth to make every patient experience a safe and positive one. But we won’t stop there. We will continue to strive for improvement wherever the opportunities exist.”
Hospitals are evaluated for their performance in the areas of patient experience, timeliness and effectiveness of care, complications & deaths, unplanned hospital visits, use of medical imaging, and payment and value of care.
