Mather received the Hospital of the Year award based on the success of its Voyage to Excellence cultural transformation program. Our Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores, which are measured by the Federal Government’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS), are among the highest on Long Island. Earlier this year, the CMS awarded Mather four stars – the highest of any Long Island hospital – for patient experience, safety, and timely and effective care measures based on publicly reported data from the HCAHPS Survey. Mather also was ranked among the best hospitals in New York by U.S. News & World Report; and earned Magnet® Designation in 2013 from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
