“Consumers place high value on information about hospital quality and use it to evaluate their choices for care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that have achieved recognition for their quality outcomes prove their commitment to their patients and their community at large.”
Patient Safety Excellence Award
The distinction places HPMC among the top 10% of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades. This designation recognizes superior performance in hospitals that have prevented the occurrence of serious, potentially avoidable complications for patients during hospital stays.
Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™
This distinction places HPMC within the top 5% of all hospitals evaluated for the exceptional care of mothers during labor and delivery.
Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award
Healthgrades 2017 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award is designed to provide women with reliable, actionable insights to help inform and educate them along their care journey and to ultimately drive better care. When selecting a hospital that has achieved this recognition, consumers can be assured of that hospital’s commitment to high-quality obstetric and gynecological care.
A 5-star rating indicates that HPMC’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated. From 2014-2016, if all hospitals as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5 stars as a group, on average nearly 220,000 lives could potentially have been saved and more than 164,000 complications could potentially have been avoided.
