Iowa Specialty Hospitals Receive Five Stars As A Top Hospital In Iowa For Physician Communication

July 17, 2023

Iowa Specialty Hospital-Belmond and Iowa Specialty Hospital-Clarion recently received five stars as a top hospital in Iowa for physician communication by Becker’s Hospital Review.

Iowa Specialty Hospital-Belmond and Iowa Specialty Hospital-Clarion were among 21 hospitals in Iowa chosen for this recognition, as well as among 347 hospitals nationwide.

Becker's compiled a list of the best hospitals for physician communication in each state using Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems data from CMS.

CMS shares 10 HCAHPS star ratings based on publicly reported HCAHPS measures. The physician communication star rating combines data from three HCAHPS survey questions and summarizes how well patients feel that their physicians explained things clearly, listened carefully to them, and treated them with courtesy and respect.

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