Healthgrades Names Delray 5-Star Recipient for HysterectomyJul 31, 2018
Delray Beach, Florida-July 31st 2018 – Delray Medical Center is a 5-star recipient for Hysterectomy by Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This 5-star rating indicates that the hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.
“It is an honor to be recognized for our care in hysterectomy health because it means we are doing our job in providing patients with the best experience possible,” said Mark Bryan, chief executive officer at Delray Medical Center. “Our outstanding physicians, nurses and staff earned this achievement on behalf of the hospital.”
“With more options than ever on where to receive care, consumers need to do their homework,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that have received a 5-star rating have shown dedication and expertise, resulting in high-quality outcomes for patients.”
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 15 states and the District of Columbia for years 2014 through 2016. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not. For example:
- From 2014 through 2016, patients having a Hysterectomy in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average, a 64.4% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.*
