The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently awarded South Georgia Medical Center a 4-Star quality rating. SGMC is the only hospital in the area to be designated a 4-Star Hospital. Only five hospitals in the state of Georgia received the 5-Star rating, the highest designation awarded by CMS.
“We are pleased that our quality and safety results rank us among the top 30 percent of hospitals in the nation by CMS,” said Ronnie Dean, SGMC Chief Executive Officer. “This designation is a result of remarkable teamwork among physicians, nurses, and our multidisciplinary care teams throughout the organization. As gratifying as it is to be rated 4-stars, our goal is to be even better for the community we serve and elevate our performance to the highest level possible.”
