CHI Health Good Samaritan, for the second consecutive year, received the highest achievement possible from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings.

The CHI Health acute care hospitals include CHI Health Lakeside, Omaha, CHI Health Midlands, Papillion and CHI Health Good Samaritan, Kearney .

The Overall Star Ratings is designed to assist patients, consumers and others in comparing hospitals side-by-side. The more stars, the better the hospital performs on the quality measures including mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience and timely and effective care.

The update is the second since the agency overhauled the ratings’ methodology in 2020. Go to Care Compare to learn more.
