Prime Healthcare Hospitals Recognized Nationally for Delivering Superior, High-Quality Care for Women
(ONTARIO, CA) – Prime Healthcare announced today that nine of its
hospitals in four states have been recognized as 5-star recipients for
women’s healthcare by Healthgrades. The 2020 Women’s Care
Excellence Awards recognize hospitals with clinical outcomes that are
statistically and significantly better than other hospitals nationwide.
Prime Healthcare consistently earns top marks for its clinical quality.
For the 2018-2020 season, Healthgrades recognized Prime hospitals with
more than 300 achievements for clinical excellence in a variety of specialties.
Collectively, Prime has had more Patient Safety Excellence Award recipients
than any other health system in the country for five consecutive years,
“Hospital quality should be top of mind for consumers when they evaluate
and compare hospital performance,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical
Officer, Healthgrades. “Women who select a hospital with a 5-star
rating can feel confident in their choice, knowing that these organizations
are committed to providing exceptional women’s care to their patients.”
Prime hospitals in Nevada, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Texas earned the
distinction in the Healthgrades 2020 Women’s Care Special Report,
which was released on August 11. The report is based on an analysis of
outcome data for all patients (all-payer data) by hospitals in 16 states
from 2016 through 2018. Data for Prime hospitals in California and seven
other states where Prime operates was not evaluated.
Prime Healthcare hospitals recognized by Healthgrades in the 2020 Women’s
Care Special Report include:
Notably, Mission Regional Medical Center in Texas received the Obstetrics
and Gynecology Excellence Award, which is bestowed for exceptional care
of mothers during and after labor and delivery, as well as care of women
undergoing gynecologic procedures.
“It is an honor to receive this distinction again. This will be our
5th straight year receiving this award,” said Mission Regional CEO
Kane Dawson. “These distinctions are a testament to the great work
our staff and physicians provide to our patients daily. It is our commitment
to provide safe and exceptional quality care.”
“We are extremely proud of our hospitals that received 5-star recognition
from Healthgrades in women’s healthcare,” said Sunny Bhatia,
MD, CEO of Region I of Prime Healthcare and Corporate Chief Medical Officer.
“Serving our community is our primary mission, and these awards
demonstrate our unwavering commitment to providing women, their babies,
and their families with high-quality, compassionate care.”
Prime’s hospitals received 5-star ratings for vaginal and C-section
deliveries, hysterectomies and gynecological procedures. Healthgrades,
a leading source of healthcare information for consumers, found that there
is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have
received 5-stars and those that have not.
For example, women having a hysterectomy in hospitals with 5-stars have
an average 63.7% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the
hospital than if they were treated at hospitals with only 1-star.
Prime’s hospitals also received five Gynecological Surgery Excellence
Awards, which are given to a select group of hospitals that are in the
top 10% of all hospitals evaluated for providing outstanding quality outcomes
in gynecologic surgery.
