Recognition

BY SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY DEC 22, 2017

Doctors Hospital of Sarasota has earned five stars from the Center for Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS is the federal agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that administers Medicare. Five stars is the highest rating a hospital can earn and only five hospitals in the state of Florida earned five stars. The overall star rating is based on 57 different quality measures including mortality, safety of care, patient experience and effectiveness of care. Earlier this year, Doctors Hospital of Sarasota also earned an “A” safety rating from The Leapfrog Group. Leapfrog assigns A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals based on performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harmful conditions. Doctors Hospital has earned an “A” consistently since 2014.
