OAHS Attains 5-Star Rating for Outstanding Rural Healthcare

Ortonville Area Health Services (OAHS) is proud to announce its recent advancement from a 4-star to a 5-star rating by the National Rural Rating System (NRRS), a testament to its ongoing commitment to providing quality healthcare in rural communities.

The NRRS Star Rating System evaluates rural and critical access hospitals on a scale of 1-5, with 5-star being the top ranking. This system uses the same metrics and criteria as the 5-star rating system of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), offering an assessment for smaller hospitals not covered by CMS ratings.

These star ratings serve as a platform for hospitals/clinics to showcase their success, representing a noteworthy recognition of their commitment to patient satisfaction, quality care, and overall performance. OAHS joins just eight other healthcare organizations in achieving 5-star status in 2024. (View the full list at
