Sparta Community Hospital Rated Five-Stars in Nurse Communication

Sparta Community Hospital has been recognized as a top hospital for Nurse Communication by Becker’s Hospital Review, a leading source of information on critical issues in healthcare.  Only 364 hospitals in the nation received five-stars for nurse communication, and Sparta Community Hospital is one of only 12 hospitals in Illinois to receive this designation.

 “Our nursing team works hard every day to ensure that patients and their families are engaged in the care they are receiving,” shares Lori Clinton, Chief Nurse Executive. “Being recognized at this level is a testament to our team and the incredible work that they do every day.”

Based on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Becker’s compiles a list of the best hospitals for patient experience across the country.  The nurse communication star rating combines data from three HCAHPS survey questions and summarizes how well patients feel their nurses explained things clearly, listened carefully to the patient, and treated the patient with courtesy and respect.

The star rating is based on survey data collected from hospital patients in the calendar year 2022 that was publicly released on November 8.
