|Lady of the Sea Recognized for Excellence in Healthcare Quality|
In 2015, Lady of the Sea General Hospital was recognized as a 5-Star Facility by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) for their outstanding patient satisfaction survey results. CMS began using a Star program to assist the public in interpreting hospital patient satisfaction, and comparing all hospitals with the other hospitals in the country. The star ratings (1-5) offer an easier way to interpret data.
There were only 251 hospitals, or 7% of hospitals nationwide, awarded a 5-Star rating in April 2015, and Lady of the Sea General Hospital was one of them. This award is announced each quarter. For the August announcement, there were 336 hospitals awarded a 5-star rating, and again Lady of the Sea continued to maintain the 5-Star designation. On October 8, 2015, the newest release was provided with only 207 (5.8%) hospitals out of 3,539 nationwide obtaining the 5-Star designation, and once again Lady of the Sea General Hospital made the list! This award highlights the hospital's constant focus on patient safety, satisfaction and quality outcomes. Thus far, Lady of the Sea is the only full service hospital in Terrebonne and Lafourche Parish to achieve this recognition.
In addition to the 5-Star recognition, Lady of the Sea General Hospital was also awarded the 2015 Safety Star Award from LHA Trust Funds for successfully implementing ideas and processes which have improved patient safety.
