The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has designated Door County Medical Center (DCMC) as a Five Star Hospital for the second consecutive year. CMS currently recognizes 407 hospitals nationwide with five stars. This designation places DCMC in the top 9 percent of all hospitals in the country.
“Door County Medical Center is proud to share this outstanding achievement with the community we serve. As rural health-care providers, we are always looking for ways to improve access to the very best medical services and care – right here at home,” said DCMC CEO and president Brian Stephens.
The overall hospital rating summarizes a variety of measures on the CMS online tool, Hospital Compare, reflecting common conditions that hospitals treat, such as heart attacks and pneumonia. Hospitals may perform more complex services or procedures not reflected in the measures on Hospital Compare. The overall hospital rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the nation.
