ARLINGTON (May 3, 2021) – A total of 11 Texas Health Resources hospitals received four or five stars on Hospital Compare, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) website. Five stars is the highest rating possible.

Hospital Compare collects data on more than 4,000 hospitals across the nation and uses the following quality and patient experience metrics to determine the overall star rating:
- Safety of Care
- Patient Experience
- Timely and Effective Care (CMS combined Effectiveness of Care, Timeliness of Care and Medical Imaging into this overall group starting calendar year 2021)
“Texas Health continues to strive for excellence in quality at all levels in all our hospitals,” said Kirk King, executive vice president and chief operations officer for the Hospital Channel. “These scores are just one reflection of the data we look at to continue to improve and better serve our patients.”
