SMMC earns five-star quality rating

November 6, 2016

For the second year in a row, Shawnee Mission Medical Center earned a five-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ new Hospital Compare website.

It is the highest possible rating.

SMMC is the only hospital in the Kansas City area to be awarded five stars.

Only 112 of the 3,693 U.S. hospitals surveyed achieved the full five-star rating.

Mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care, and efficient use of medical imaging are all taken into consideration during the rating.
