CHICAGO -- The government is out with the results of a nationwide hospital patient satisfaction survey. In Illinois, the Chicago area stood out for having some of the lowest-rated hospitals — six received just one star — along with a handful of highly rated facilities that have focused on making hospital visits less unpleasant.
Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion was the only hospital in the Chicago area to receive five stars.
Rush in Chicago and Oak Park got four stars, and Northwestern Memorial Hospital received three stars.
Six hospitals in Chicago received one star:
- Jackson Park
- Norwegian-American Hospital
- Roseland Community Hospital
- Saint Anthony Hospital
- South Shore Hospital
- Saint Bernard Hospital
The CEO ofJackson Park says evaluating hospitals is more complicated than star ratings.
