Schneck recognized for quality of care


This month, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released its most recent quality rating for hospitals, and Schneck Medical Center was among the top 3 percent of hospitals nationwide.

For the second time, the Seymour hospital achieved a five-star rating — the highest possible rating for quality of care, customer experience and value of care received, according to a news release from Schneck.

Schneck also was one of only 112 hospitals nationwide to receive this distinction and one of only nine in Indiana.

The other Hoosier hospitals recognized were Franciscan St. Francis, Mooresville; IU Health West, Avon; Memorial Hospital and Health Center, Jasper; OrthoIndy, Indianapolis; Orthopaedic Hospital at Parkview North, Fort Wayne; St. Catherine Hospital, East Chicago; St. Vincent, Carmel; and The Orthopaedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network, Fort Wayne.

The report, available on the Hospital Compare website, reflects comprehensive quality of care in the nation’s hospitals.

The assessment comes from a hospital rating system based on 64 quality measures — ranging from one to five stars — and shows how well each hospital performs, on average, compared to other hospitals in the United States. The more stars, the better a hospital performs with the most common overall rating being three stars.
