FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CMS penalizes 24 Michigan hospitals

58 percent of penalized hospitals located in Southeastern Michigan

NOVI, MICHIGAN, March 6, 2019 The Economic Alliance for Michigan (EAM), a nonprofit group comprised of Michigan’s largest employers and unions, is concerned about the number of hospitals in Southeast Michigan being penalized for hospital acquired conditions by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). According to a report released by Kaiser Health News on March 1, 2019, the federal government will reduce payments to 800 hospitals nationwide, including 24 hospitals in Michigan (see list below).

Penalized hospitals will lose one percent of Medicare payments in the coming fiscal year. Estimated losses among larger hospitals will exceed over one million dollars. The goal is to hold hospitals accountable for hospital acquired infections such as blood clots, sepsis, bedsores and other adverse events a patient may acquire during a hospital admission.

Overall, Michigan fared better than most states; however, there is concern over the high amount of penalized hospitals servicing Michigan’s major population clusters in the southeastern region.

Key findings for Michigan:

Hospitals in Michigan only accounted for 3.0% of hospitals penalized nationwide.

58 percent of penalized hospitals are located within the state’s southeastern region.

Four hospitals have been penalized for the past five years straight: DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital in Detroit, DMC Harper University in Detroit, Hurley Medical Center in Flint, and McLaren Flint,

In this report, it’s great to see the state, as a whole, performing above the national standard for patient safety,” said Bret Jackson, president of EAM. However, some facilities are harming patients, increasing their need for care, and adding to the high cost of healthcare. It is our hope to work with these hospitals to improve their outcomes.
