JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Sixty five hospitals from all corners of Wisconsin could face federal penalties for high rates of complications and infections.
The Janesville Gazette reported Wednesday (http://tiny.cc/u1k0hx ) that St. Mary's Janesville Hospital was on the list.
Other hospitals on the list include ones in virtually every part of the state including Appleton, Wausau, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Madison, La Crosse, Rhinelander and Racine.
Nationally, there are 761 hospitals on the preliminary list compiled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of those that could be penalized.
Some of the hospitals on the list could avoid penalties after the agency does more analysis.
Those that still have poor scores by October will lose 1 percent of their Medicare payments from October through September 2015.
