Geneva General Hospital Scores Exceed National, State and Regional Hospital Benchmarks
Geneva General Hospital (GGH) has achieved industry leading performance scores from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program. Geneva General Hospital scored higher than national, state and other regional hospitals. GGH was one of nine hospitals out of over 200 hospitals in New York State to surpass the state performance score.



This achievement is significant since hospitals across the country will now be paid for inpatient acute care services based on care quality, as measured by the CMS indicators outlined in the VBP program, not just the quantity of the services they provide. This is also referred to as “pay for performance”. Geneva General Hospital will be reimbursed 2% above the base rate from CMS for each Medicare discharge occurring in fiscal year 2013.



“This superb achievement is a team effort across the organization. We are proving not only to our community, but to the entire nation that we provide safe, quality care for our patients. We continue to make progress towards our goal of being the best by improving our clinical outcomes, HCAHPS scores and Department of Health surveys; this is what our patients, nursing home residents and all of our community members deserve” states Dr. Jose Acevedo, President and CEO of Finger Lakes Health.

Each day our clinical staff documents medical treatment in the patient medical record. This clinical care data is compiled quarterly and submitted to The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Please visit www.flhealth.org/ClinicalPerformance to view our latest scores in the areas of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and stroke. Our scores illustrate our dedication to accountability, ongoing improvement, and commitment to assuring our patients receive the best care available. Our commitment to providing the highest quality patient care and patient satisfaction is our utmost priority.
