(Highland, IL) – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland has received a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the top score in the federal agency’s ratings system.  
 
According to CMS, the overall rating summarizes quality measures, reflecting common conditions that hospitals treat, such as heart attacks or pneumonia. The overall rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the country. HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland was one of twelve out of 185 hospitals in Illinois to receive five stars and one of two critical access hospitals to receive this recognition.
 
“We are very proud of our colleagues who work so hard to provide this level of care,” said John Ludwig, St. Joseph’s President and CEO. “This five-star rating from CMS validates our continuous commitment to top tier patient care, and I am confident we will continue to exceed our patients and their families’ expectations every day.”
