Wentworth-Douglass Only Seacoast Hospital with Five-Star CMS Rating

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital is among just 455 hospitals nationwide, and the only one on the Seacoast, to receive a five-star rating in the most recent 2021 ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Just 455 of the more than 3,200 hospitals included in the rankings received five stars.

The only other hospitals in New Hampshire with five-star ratings were Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital in Lebanon and Concord Hospital.

The Overall Hospital Quality Star rating (overall star rating) summarizes a variety of measures across five areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. The rating system assigns stars based on an average of 37 measures in the following five categories: mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, and timely and effective care.

Only hospitals that have at least three measures within three measure groups with at least one of those groups being Mortality or Safety of Care, are eligible for an overall star rating.
