Healthgrades® Names Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center to its America’s 50 Best Hospitals™ List
March 19, 2014 – Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center has been recognized as one of the nation’s top hospitals in Healthgrades’ America’s Best Hospitals Report 2014. Healthgrades®, the leading resource for information about physicians and hospitals, named Memorial Regional to its annual America’s 50 Best Hospitals list, placing it in the top one percent of the 4,500 hospitals evaluated nationwide.
“Being named as one of the nation’s best hospitals by Healthgrades underscores our unwavering dedication to improving clinical outcomes for our community,” said Michael Robinson, CEO, Bon Secours
Memorial Regional Medical Center and Richmond Community Hospital. “We have always been committed to excellence and providing quality and compassionate care to our patients. With this recognition, people can independently verify Memorial Regional’s performance to help them make informed decisions about where to receive their health care.” Memorial Regional achieved this distinction based on an evaluation of clinical performance over seven years. According to the Healthgrades evaluation threshold for their America’s Best Hospitals, Memorial Regional exhibited comprehensive high-quality care across clinical specialties repeatedly, demonstrating an institutional commitment to clinical quality by the organization.
“By choosing a hospital that has achieved the Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospital award, consumers can expect a long-standing commitment to exceptional clinical care – and receive a quality of care that is among the highest quality medical care in the nation,” said Evan Marks, EVP, informatics and strategy, Healthgrades.
Hospitals that achieve America’s 50 Best have demonstrated the ability to have better than expected outcomes across many different procedures and conditions year after year.
Healthgrades found that if all hospitals performed at the level as America’s 50 Best, more than 157,069 lives could have potentially been saved nationwide between 2010 and 2012. This translates to a 23.29 percent lower risk-adjusted mortality rate for those hospitals in the America’s 50 Bes list when compared to all other hospitals in the nation (across 19 procedures and conditions where in-hospital mortality was the clinical outcome).
