Coconut Telegraph


Report cards are out for the nation’s hospitals, and Sarasota Memorial Hospital received the highest 5-star rating for the fourth consecutive rating period. Less than 10 percent of U.S. hospitals earned the federal government’s highest marks in 2017, according to the American Hospital Association. The updated results are slated to be posted this month on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website. Although the most recent scores are not yet available to the public, hospitals received their individual report cards from CMS, and Sarasota Memorial retained its title as the only hospital in Florida to consistently earn a 5-star ratings in all rating periods since the star program’s inception in 2016. “Our continuous five-star rating truly sets us apart from other hospitals, and is the result of our physicians’ and staff’s expertise and enduring commitment to provide the highest level of care to our community,” said Sarasota Memorial CEO David Verinder.
