Anderson Earns 4 Star Rating

CMS4StarLogo

Anderson Hospital is proud to announce that it is has received a 4-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare Medicaid (CMS). These ratings are based on the most recent CMS Hospital Compare data that’s based on a hospital’s overall quality. The overall rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S.
The CMS rating system is publically reported, and helps guide patients as they select where to receive their healthcare. CMS calculates the rating by including information on mortality, safety of care, readmissions, patient satisfaction, quality measures, claims data and timeliness of care. Those numbers are then calculated in order to assign the star rating. Anderson Hospital is proud to be the only 4-star rated acute care hospital in Madison County.

Anderson ExpressCare Billing

We wanted to clarify an issue that has been discussed in some local social media groups regarding ExpressCare billing:    

Your ExpressCare visit will be billed as an Urgent Care Visit (Revenue code 456).  Revenue codes are 3-digit numbers that are used on insurance claims to tell the insurance companies where the patient was when they received treatment.  Since patient insurance coverage plans differ greatly, we urge you to contact your insurance provider prior to your visit to confirm Urgent Care (revenue code 456) is covered under your plan.  Patient co-pays and deductibles are set by your insurance carrier, not Anderson ExpressCare.  Knowing your coverage plan details and how your insurance carrier will administrate the bill is key to avoiding misinformation. 

Auxiliary Presents Annual Check

Anderson Hospital Auxiliary presented Anderson Hospital President and CEO, Keith Page (far right) with its annual donation to the hospital during the Auxiliary’s Annual Meeting held January 13. The donation, which reflects funds raised in 2019, totaled $76,000. This annual donation is made possible through the Auxiliary Gift Shop, Medical Alert Service, Fundraising Events, Vending Machine Sales, and the newborn photos program.

The Auxiliary has over 200 active members and is an integral part of Anderson Hospital. Volunteers gave nearly 40,000 hours of service to Anderson Hospital in 2019.

Active Volunteers provide direct services to the Emergency, O.B. and Outpatient Surgery
Departments, as well as being “on call” from the Volunteer Office. They manage information desks at public entrances including those at the Cancer Center and Wellness Center. Volunteers are the sole proprietors of our hospital’s Gift Shop managing staff, purchasing inventory, and all inventory management.

“The Auxiliary remains as dedicated and instrumental as ever in the continuing operation of Anderson Hospital,” said Page. “We thank them for their many hours of service and commitment to making a difference in Anderson Hospital.”
