Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating for RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER
Overall Rating: Not Available
The Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating for RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER summarizes a variety of measures across 5 areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. Once reporting thresholds are met, a hospital’s Overall Star Rating is calculated using only those measures for which data are available. Hospitals report data to The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") through the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program, Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) Program, Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), Hospital-Acquired Condition (HAC) Reduction Program, and Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program. Overall Star Ratings aren’t calculated for Veterans Health Administration (VHA) or Department of Defense (DoD) hospitals.
Most hospitals will have an Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating of 3.
The methodology used to calculate Overall Star Ratings involves multiple steps to select, standardize, and calculate scores based on Care Compare measures. Overall Star Ratings are created using this seven-step process:
- Selection and standardization of measures for inclusion in the Overall Star Rating
- Assignment of measures to groups
- Calculation and standardization of measure group scores
- Calculation of hospital summary scores as a weighted average of available group scores
- Application of minimum thresholds for receiving an Overall Star Rating
- Assignment of hospitals to peer groups based on their number of measure groups (3, 4, or 5)
- Application of clustering algorithm to categorize summary scores into star ratings
For each hospital, a hospital summary score is calculated by taking the weighted average of the hospital’s scores for each measure group. The table below shows the weight applied to each measure group. The hospital summary score is then used to assign hospitals to star ratings, using k-means clustering within each peer group.
|Measure group||Weight used in calculation|
|Timely & Effective Care||12%|
Note that these percentage weights are out of 100%. If a hospital has no measures in a certain measure group, the weighted percentage is redistributed proportionally to the other measure groups. For example, if a hospital had no measures in the Timely & Effective Care category, the 12% weight would be redistributed evenly as 25% for each of the Mortality, Safety of Care, Readmission and Patient Experience groups.
National distribution of the Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating The following table shows the national distribution of the Overall Star Rating based on July 2022 results.

Cost of RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER, Compare to National and State Averages
Understanding how much a hospital is going to cost is extremely difficult. Hospitals themselves actively obscure what they charge and have negotiated different rates with different insurers. Then you have the problem of the wide variety of treatments which the RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER provides.
To provide some standard metric to compare hospital costs, CMS publishes the MSPB (or "Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary"). Even though you may not be on Medicare, this metric may still be useful. The MSPB is expressed as a percentage compared to the national average for costs that Medicare incurs. A percentage higher than 100% means the hospital charges more than the national average while a percentage less than 100% means the hospital charges less than the national average.

More Information about the calculation of Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary for RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER: The measure assesses Medicare Part A and Part B payments for services provided to a RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER during a spending-per-beneficiary episode that spans from three days prior to an inpatient hospital admission through 30 days after discharge. The payments included in this measure are price-standardized and risk-adjusted. The payment measures for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and hip/knee replacement are estimates of payments associated with a 30-day episode of care for heart attack, heart failure, or pneumonia, or a 90-day episode of care for hip/knee replacement. The episode of care begins with the admission. For the heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia measures, payments across multiple care settings, services, and supplies (inpatient, outpatient, skilled nursing facility, home health, hospice, physician/clinical laboratory/ambulance services, durable medical equipment, prosthetics/orthotics, and supplies) are assessed for the next 30 days. For hip/knee replacement, the measure includes all payments for the next 30 days but also includes payments related to the hip/knee replacement for days 31 – 90. For the heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and hip/knee replacement payment measures, payment rates are provided in the downloadable database and presented on the Hospital Care Compare website in terms of dollars. Hospitals’ rates are compared to the national mean payment to categorize whether a hospital’s payment rate is less than the national mean payment, no different than the national mean payment, or greater than the national mean payment, For some hospitals, the number of cases is too small to reliably compare their results to the national mean payment. The payment measures are not intended to be interpreted in isolation but to be considered in the context of existing quality measures such as CMS’s 30-day mortality measures for heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia, and the 90-day complication measure for hip/knee replacement.
Infection Rates at RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER
These measures show how often patients at RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER contract certain infections during the course of their medical treatment, when compared to other hospitals nationally. HAI measures provide information on infections that occur while the patient is in the hospital and include: central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), catheterassociated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), surgical site infection (SSI) from colon surgery or abdominal hysterectomy, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) blood laboratory-identified events (bloodstream infections), and Clostridium difficile (C.diff.) laboratory-identified events (intestinal infections). The HAI measures show how often patients at RIO GRANDE STATE CENTER contract certain infections during the course of their medical treatment, when compared to like hospitals. The CDC calculates a Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) which may take into account the type of patient care location, number of patients with an existing infection, laboratory methods, hospital affiliation with a medical school, bed size of the hospital, patient age, and classification of patient health. SIRs are calculated for the hospital, the state, and the nation. Hospitals’ SIRs are compared to the national benchmark to determine if hospitals’ performance on these measures is better than the national benchmark (lower), no different than the national benchmark, or worse than the national benchmark (higher). The HAI measures apply to all patients treated in acute care hospitals, including adult, pediatric, neonatal, Medicare, and non-Medicare patients.
