LOS ANGELES—March 8, 2022—CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center (CHA HPMC), a member of CHA Health Systems, a global network providing a full spectrum of dynamic healthcare services, has been named as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Spine Surgery by Healthgrades, the leading online resource that connects consumers, physicians, and health systems, for three years in a row. In addition, CHA HPMC is the only hospital in Los Angeles to be recognized for three consecutive years within the top 1% of nation’s hospitals that deliver superior patient outcomes in back and neck surgeries and spinal fusion.

Advanced Neuro Angio Suite Featuring State-of-the-Art Technology to Provide Minimally Invasive Treatments

“We are extremely proud to achieve this distinction which recognizes our commitment to improving the health of our patients and communities we serve, while ensuring utmost patient safety. Advanced level of care, latest technology, and the dedication and collaborative effort of our top doctors, clinical teams, and support staff has helped us maintain the level of excellence even during these challenging times. The importance of hospital quality is now on every patient’s mind during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and this recognition is a testament to our highest standards of care and the quality of our healthcare team,” said Marcel Loh, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

At CHA HPMC, patients can receive care from nationally renowned spine surgeons who provide specialized surgical services utilizing minimally invasive, computer-assisted techniques to optimize clinical outcomes and patient experience, while reducing surgical invasiveness and length of hospital stay. The hospital will increase its surgical capacity with the opening of its state-of-the-art, $400 million new patient tower at the end of 2022. The new tower will feature technologically advanced surgical suites and new operating rooms to treat more patients in private rooms.

“CHA HPMC has positioned itself throughout the years as an innovative, quality healthcare system and I am excited to begin working collaboratively with employees, physicians, unions, community leaders, and the Board in charting the next course for the future of the organization,” Loh said.

“CHA HPMC offers some of the most advanced surgical technologies than any other hospitals, which enables us—as surgeons—to provide the best care possible to our patients. The new surgical suites will further enhance the bandwidth of offerings for patients and help us optimize the efficiency of our care services,” said Dr. Sun H. Lee, board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in complex spine surgery at CHA HPMC.

In addition to being recognized as one of the top spine hospitals in the nation, CHA HPMC has also achieved the Surgical Care Excellence Award (2022), for delivering enhanced patient outcomes in surgical care across 15 of the most common in-hospital surgical procedures, and awarded America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention for superior clinical outcomes in coronary intervention procedures (angioplasty with stent). Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance and patient outcome data of 4,500 hospitals in the US for the most common inpatient procedures and conditions annually.
