Kaweah Delta Medical Center has earned the highest overall hospital quality rating among hospitals in Fresno, Tulare and Kings counties, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).


Kaweah Delta earned four stars out of five from CMS. The rating reflects the hospital’s overall performance on up to 57 quality measures related to common conditions hospital’s treat, such as heart attacks or pneumonia. The rating was first released in August 2016 and since that time, Kaweah Delta has improved its star rating from three to four stars. The most common rating is three stars.

The majority of area hospitals received two stars. Two-star earners include Saint Agnes Medical Center, Clovis Community Medical Center, Sierra View Medical Center, Adventist Medical Centers in Hanford and Reedley, and Community Regional Medical Center. Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Fresno earned three stars. Tulare Regional Medical Center earned one star.

“This improvement is a reflection of the efforts we have made at Kaweah Delta to improve quality of care for our patients,” Kaweah Delta Health Care District CEO Lindsay Mann said in a statement. “We will continue to be diligent and take advantage of every opportunity to ensure that our patients are satisfied with the care they receive. Our goal will always be to continue to improve for our patients and families.”
