WAUPUN — Becker’s has compiled a list of the top hospitals for patient experience in each state using Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems data from CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services). SSM Waupun Memorial Hospital was on this list and is a CMS 5 star hospital.
CMS shares 10 HCAHPS star ratings based on publicly reported HCAHPS measures. Every hospital on this list received a five-star summary rating, which is the average of the star ratings of the 10 topic-specific HCAHPS measures, including nurse and physician communication, care transitions, and cleanliness.

The star rating is based on survey data collected from hospital patients from October 2021 through September 2022. The figures are from CMS’ Provider Data Catalog and were released July 26.
