Three area hospitals score 5 stars from Medicare, two end up on opposite end

Medicare released its annual “Hospital Compare” star ratings list, and one of the area’s big names earned a five-star rating for the first time, The Kansas City Star reports.

Medicare, which started the rating system in 2016, gave The University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., a five-star rating this year. Medicare uses a variety of data to compile its rankings, including patient surveys, rates of surgical complications, infections and death, unplanned hospital readmissions and other criteria.
