Door County Medical Center has once again been named one of the best hospitals in the country, according to a federal agency. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services awarded Door County Medical Center with the Five Star Hospital Distinction for the second year in a row. The rating considers several factors, including quality outcomes, mortality rates, infection rates, and patient satisfaction. Door County Medical Center CEO and President Brian Stephens says they have improved in several areas over the last few years, including the number of patients readmitted.
Stephens applauds the entire team at Door County Medical Center for their role in helping them achieve the distinction. Only 407 hospitals received the five-star honor, placing them in the top nine percent of hospitals in the country.
