Medicare has put out patient reviews of hospitals.
There’s a five star rating system and local hospitals got 3’s and 4’s.
Friday the Chicago Tribune had a huge article about the new program, including a list in descending order of the hospitals.
Only one got five stars. That was Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion.
The rankings of local hospitals follow:
- Advocate Good Shepherd in Barrington (4th on the list)
- (now) Advocate Sherman in Elgin (14th on the list)
- Centegra – McHenry (23rd on the list)
- Centegra – Woodstock (24th on the list)
