Honors include 5-Star rating from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

LEWISTOWN, Pa. – Geisinger Lewistown Hospital earned the highest score for quality from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), joining an elite group of hospitals across the country with 5-Star ratings for the latest measuring period.
 
The hospital also earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group — a national recognition of excellence for protecting patients from preventable harm and errors. 

“Geisinger has been the trusted name for healthcare in our communities for more than 100 years,” said Donna Hahn, RN, vice president of quality and safety for Geisinger. “By earning 5-Star status and an ’A’ from Leapfrog, we’re showing our patients that trust is well earned. When they visit a Geisinger hospital, they can feel confident that they are in the safest, most capable hands in the entire country.”

The Leapfrog Group, a national healthcare nonprofit, assigns grades from "A" to "F" to almost 3,000 general hospitals across the country. The latest grade is based on more than 30 performance measures that track errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

"This award reflects the tremendous hard work and heart our teams put into providing the safest and highest quality care for our patients," said Kirk Thomas, chief administrative officer, Geisinger, Western Region. "We're so proud to see our staff and providers recognized for their dedication to our patients and the community."
