Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse is one of 27 hospitals in the state and 400 hospitals in the country to receive a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services…Mayo in La Crosse is one of 13 Mayo hospitals to receive five stars, the agency’s highest rating…CMS is a government agency, and this is not something you pay for, so this is highly meaningful to us,” said Dr. Paul Mueller, Mayo’s regional vice president. “For patients, when they’re choosing a system for care, we’d think that those ratings would be important to them.”… Mike Morrey, Mayo’s chair of administration in southwestern Wisconsin, called the five-star rating a testament to “the great work of our staff and providers, our nurses, our physicians and our support personnel.” “It takes a team effort,” he said. Overall, Wisconsin has more five-star hospitals than every state except California and Texas.
