one to five stars, with five stars the top ranking.

and services to our service area," said HRRMC CEO Robert Morasko.
"I also want to recognize our board of directors for their outstanding
leadership. The board supported HRRMC's establishment of relevant
goals and strategies that focused our hospital on achieving the high level
of service exemplified by the five-star rating."
First available in 2005, Hospital Compare was created through the efforts
of CMS in collaboration with organizations representing consumers, hospitals,
doctors, employers, accrediting organizations and other federal agencies.
According to CMS, Hospital Compare is a consumer-oriented website that
provides information on how well hospitals provide recommended care to
their patients. This helps consumers to make informed decisions about
