Sharon Hospital earns fourth consecutive five-star rating from federal healthcare agency

Sharon Hospital and Nuvance Health today announced that the organization will host a Community Update from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 29 via Zoom livestream video.


Sharon Hospital, part of Nuvance Health, has been awarded a five-star rating — the highest overall — by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for quality patient care.

The overall rating, between one and five stars, provides consumers with a summary of a hospital’s overall quality performance into a single summary score. Scores are determined from a variety of data reported, including mortality, safety of care, timely and effective care, readmissions, and patient experience.

Sharon Hospital is one three hospitals in Connecticut to earn the five-star rating and one of 483 facilities in the nation to earn the top score.

“Our fourth consecutive five-star rating is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our inspiring healthcare professionals who share in our culture, one dedicated to excellence and the best outcomes for every patient,” said Christina McCulloch, Sharon Hospital President. “We thank you, our community, for the support to help us reach this achievement, and to our staff for their dedicated leadership in quality and safety standards across the institution”. 

The CMS hospital rating system provides information about the quality of care at Medicare-certified hospitals across the country. The system offers consumers a snapshot view of quality ratings and consumer-reported satisfaction. More than 3,000 hospitals are measured by the federal agency. 

The distinction is one of many recent honors for Sharon Hospital, including three previous five-star ratings from CMS in 2020, 2021and 2022, alongside an American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Get with the Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus award.
