Thursday, April 11, 2019 - Lakeview Hospital gets 5-star rating from CMS

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its Hospital Compare data in February and March. It was the first time since December 2017 the data had been refreshed.

Lakeview Hospital was one of just 293 hospitals out of more than 4,500 in the country to receive a 5-star rating. The results place Lakeview in the top 6.4 percent of hospitals nationally.

Hospital Compare is a user-friendly website run by the CMS. It provides patients, families and stakeholders with the information they need to compare the performance of hospitals when they’re choosing where to seek medical care.

Ted Wegleitner, President of Lakeview Hospital, said: “We’re so proud of our team that provides this nationally excellent level of care to the people of Stillwater and the surrounding communities. It takes a team effort to achieve these consistently high results for the quality of our patient care. We are looking continuously for new ways to improve care and safety, and I’m personally thankful for each member of our team who helps to put our patients first every day.”
