Arkansas Heart Hospital is the only hospital in Little Rock to receive the prestigious Five-Star Overall Hospital rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Arkansas Heart Hospital is one of 293 hospitals nationwide and one of two in Arkansas to receive this distinction.
“We are honored by this recognition,” said President Drew Jackson. “Our patients are treated like family from the moment they walk in the door. This distinction is not possible without the dedication, commitment, and hard work of our staff and physicians. Every department, every employee is essential to our organization. Our mission is to provide extraordinary service; this honor reaffirms that commitment,” said Jackson.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services provide the rankings for hospitals across the country. The public information is provided to empower patients, families, and stakeholders with important information they need to compare hospitals and make informed healthcare decisions. The Star Ratings drive systematic improvements in care and safety as hospitals strive to achieve and maintain high ratings.
