Healthgrades Recognizes Saint John’s Health Center For Overall Excellence:

Saint John’s Health Center has once again been recognized by Healthgrades for overall excellence in cardiac care, orthopedics, critical care and women’s health. Additionally, new to Healthgrades this year, Saint John’s has been recognized for both neuroscience and gastrointestinal care.

“It takes hard work and dedication from our physicians, nurses and staff to continue to provide such a high level of care to our patients,” said Michael L. Wall, Acting President and CEO of Saint John’s Health Center. “It is great to see our efforts recognized by such a reputable source year after year.”

Healthgrades is the leading online resource that helps consumers search, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals. Saint John’s achievements were released with other new findings in American Hospital Quality Outcomes 2014: Healthgrades Report to the Nation, which evaluates hospital performance at over 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 31 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.

The new report highlights the disparity in hospital performance for specific conditions and procedures and the impact that this variation may have on health outcomes.

For example, from 2010-2012, if all hospitals as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5-stars as a group, on average 234,252 lives could potentially have been saved and 157,418 complications could potentially have been avoided.

A 5-star rating indicates that Saint John’s clinical outcomes are better than expected when treating the condition or conducting the procedure being evaluated.

Additionally, Healthgrades recognized that Saint John’s not only performs at a 5 star level – it outperforms other hospitals in the nation in this condition, and as a result has been recognized with the 2014 Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Awards.

For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 40 million Medicare-patient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide, assessing hospital performance relative to each of 31 common conditions and procedures.

Healthgrades awards hospitals quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality.
