GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Fairview Hospital has been named a 5-Star Hospital by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.  

The star ratings - five stars being the top rating - relate to patients' experience of care. The ratings are based on data from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Survey (HCAHPS) at more than 4000 Medicare-certified acute care hospitals across the country. The HCAPHPS summary star rating combines information about different aspects of patient's experience of care.

The HCAHPS survey focused on three topics: composite topics, individual topics and global topics encompassing measures including: nurse communication, doctor communication, and responsiveness of hospital staff, pain management, and communication about medicines, discharge information and care transition, patients’ perception of cleanliness of hospital environment and quietness of hospital environment, and hospital rating and willingness to recommend hospital.

Hospital Compare was created through the efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, in collaboration with organizations representing consumers, hospitals, doctors, employers, accrediting organizations, and other federal agencies.The Hospital Compare web site can be viewed online.
