A 5 star rating indicates that Dominican Hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.
“We are honored to earn this Healthgrades distinction for gastrointestinal care,” said Nanette Mickiewicz, MD, Dominican Hospital president. “Our gastroenterology medical team is highly skilled and knowledgeable, and the technology available in our new endoscopy suite is the most advanced in the Monterey Bay area. We are proud to provide outstanding quality care for our community.”
These achievements are part of new findings released today in the Healthgrades 2017 Report to the Nation. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals nationally, regionally, and at the local level, and the impact that this variation may have on health outcomes.
For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide, and assessed hospital performance relative to each of 32 common conditions and procedures. 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) categories. The complete Healthgrades 2017 Report to the Nation with detailed cohort-specific outcomes data, hospital-specific quality achievements, and detailed study methodology, can be found at www.healthgrades.com/quality.
