Providence Saint John’s Health Center Among Nation’s Top 50 Hospitals:

Providence Saint John’s Health Center was named Tuesday among the nation’s top 50 hospitals, the only California hospital and one of just 11 nationwide to receive the distinction every year since it was initiated in 2007.

The Healthgrades 2015 America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award was given to the top 1 percent of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide for consistent, year-over-year superior clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

“Saint John’s is a health care ‘gem’ in Santa Monica, and has managed to outperform highly regarded hospitals not only here on the Westside but across America,” said Marcel Loh, the hospital’s chief executive. “I am overwhelmed by the dedication of every physician, nurse, caregiver and volunteer who continuously strive to give the best to our patients and our community.”          

In compiling its 50 Best Hospitals list, Healthgrades analyzed data from 2011-13 to determine the highest performing hospitals – those with a 25 percent lower risk-adjusted mortality rate across 19 procedures and conditions where in-hospital mortality was the clinical outcome, compared to all other hospitals.

During this same period, if all other hospitals performed at the level of America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award recipients across these 19 procedures and conditions, 168,239 lives could potentially have been saved.  For example, patients treated at a hospital that has achieved the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award had, on average, a 26.6 percent lower risk of dying from heart failure than if treated at a hospital that did not receive the award.

The 50 recipients of the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award stand out among the rest for overall clinical excellence across a broad spectrum of care. To learn more about how Healthgrades determines America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award recipients, visit www.healthgrades.com/quality.
