Lehigh Acres, Florida, July 29, 2022 – Lehigh Regional Medical Center is proud to be awarded Four Stars for the second year in a row by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The CMS overall star rating is based on how well a hospital performs across different areas of quality, such as treating heart attacks and pneumonia, readmission rates, and safety of care. This shows how individual hospitals perform compared to all hospitals across the country for the 5 groups or categories of quality measures that make up for the overall star rating and can be considered as a factor when choosing a hospital.

“We are extremely proud of the employees and physicians at Lehigh Regional who have worked hard to earn this mark of distinction,” said Cheryl McIntire, CEO of Lehigh Regional Medical Center. “The four-star rating from CMS again this year is another objective measure of the high-quality patient care delivered to everyone who comes through our doors.”

Lehigh Regional Medical Center always strives to provide the very best care and service. It’s this dedication to compassionate quality care and excellent healthcare in the communities we serve that has led Lehigh Regional Medical Center to receive numerous awards for quality and patient safety.
