Healthgrades is the leading marketplace to find and connect with the right doctor, the right hospital and the right care
Memorial is five-star rated for Pacemaker Procedures according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems. For the second year in a row, Memorial was recognized as a five-star recipient for Carotid Procedures, and Memorial was recognized as a five-star recipient for Spinal Fusion Surgery in 2022.
Every year, for its analysis, Healthgrades evaluates approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide to assess hospital performance in 31 common conditions and procedures.
“Memorial is honored to receive five-star recognitions from Healthgrades, especially as these evaluations are based solely on clinical outcomes,” said Memorial President/CEO Kent Nicaud. “Although our team has faced significant odds, these ratings are a credit to our talented and dedicated surgeons and support staff, who continue to provide a high level of care to our community.”
These analyses show that patients treated at hospitals receiving a five-star rating have a lower risk of mortality and a lower risk of experiencing one or more complications during a hospital stay than if they were treated at hospitals receiving a lower rating in that procedure or condition.
Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality. Individual procedure or condition cohorts are designated as 5-star (statistically significantly better than expected), 3-star (not statistically different from expected), and 1-star (statistically significantly worse than expected).
We are proud of the dedicated team members who work diligently to improve patient outcomes and increase the quality of care in our region. Our mission is to provide advanced and compassionate care to heal, inspire, and transform the health of our community.
