All Five Inova Hospitals Earn Highest CMS Five-Star Quality Rating

FALLS CHURCH, VA– All five of Inova Health System’s hospitals have been rated with 5 out of 5 stars in the most recent Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Five-Star Quality Rating System report.  Inova is the only health system in the country comprised of more than 3 hospitals where all are 5 star rated.  A CMS five‐star quality rating is based on extensive data that measures patient experience, infection rates, readmissions and mortality.

Inova Health System’s 5 Star hospitals are Inova Fairfax, Inova Fair Oaks, Inova Alexandria, Inova Mount Vernon and Inova Loudoun Hospital.

CMS, the top health agency of the federal government, created the Five-Star Quality Rating System as an evidence-based evaluation reflecting a hospital’s standard of care. The rating system is based on quality measurements that have real meaning for patient health and well-being, including safety, timeliness and effectiveness of care.

“A relentless focus on our patients and putting their needs at the center of every aspect of our work at Inova has earned this exclusive CMS recognition. I am incredibly proud of our team members and their commitment to safety, clinical excellence and delivery of an exceptional experience every time, every touch.” said J. Stephen Jones, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer, Inova. 

CMS hospital rating results, comprising up to 51 patient quality measures, are accessible on its Hospital Compare page. The resource was created to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare and evaluate hospital quality to set expectations and better inform their decision about a healthcare provider. Based on the CMS Five-Star rating, Inova is the premier destination in the Metro DC area for the highest quality care and exceptional patient experience.
