Healthgrades names Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center
5-Star recipient for C-section delivery for 3 Years in a row
Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center today announced that it has
been named a 5-star recipient for C-Section delivery for three years in a row by
Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians
and hospitals. This 5-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.
“Saint Mary’s is dedicated to providing the safest labor and
delivery care to our patients,” said Bre Taylor, Director of Maternal
Child Services for Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center. “Our
team of experienced professionals within the Saint Mary’s Family
Birth Center make patient care their top priority and ensure a positive
delivery experience for every patient.”
Saint Mary’s supports patients with all delivery choices and offers
a full panel of skilled women’s health providers including midwifery
options. Women’s health services at Saint Mary’s focus on
all stages of a female’s health cycle including adolescence, prenatal
care, infertility services, menopausal care, and more. Patients receiving
care at a 5-star facility for C-section delivery on average have a lower
risk of experiencing complication while in a hospital than if they were
treated by hospitals with 1-star.
“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.”
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 5-stars and those who have not.
