Siskin Hospital Boasts Region’s Only 5-Star Subacute Program

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Siskin Hospital’s Subacute program has attained Medicare’s highest rating, the only Chattanooga-area skilled facility to have achieved this exceptional designation.

“We are thrilled to once again be recognized as a five-star provider,” said Siskin Hospital President and CEO Dr. Matthew Gibson. “It’s a testament to the highest quality of care we continually seek to provide our patients.”

The Subacute program at Siskin Hospital West is also recognized by U.S. News & World Report as among the nation’s top 15 percent of Short-Term Rehabilitation facilities and is the recipient of the 2019 Bronze AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award.

The Five-Star Quality Rating System was created by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to make it easier for consumers, families and caregivers to compare skilled nursing facilities. This system gives each facility a rating of between one and five stars. According to CMS.gov, facilities with five stars “are considered to have much above average quality.”
