Denver, Colo. – September 22, 2017 – Rose Medical Center has been named a Five-Star Recipient for hysterectomy care by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. The Five-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.
“We are honored to be recognized by Healthgrades for our hysterectomy care,” said Lynne Wagner, Chief Nursing Officer at Rose. “Rose is dedicated to exceptional patient care for all procedures and this recognition is just another example of our team’s hard work and compassionate care.”
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 17 states for years 2013 through 2015. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those who have received a Five-Star rating and those who have not. For example, from 2013 through 2015, patients having a hysterectomy in Five-Star hospitals have, on average, 59.5 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with one star (Healthgrades Report to the Nation, 2017).
“Consumers place high-quality outcomes at the top of their wish list when selecting a hospital, so health systems that have achieved this particular distinction stand out among their peers,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Especially in an environment where consumers have more choices than ever before about where to receive care, a hospital’s commitment to achieving high-quality outcomes for their patients is more important than ever.”
