Santa Ana, CA – Today, South Coast Global Medical Center announced that it has been named a 5-star recipient for Hysterectomy, C-Section Delivery, and Vaginal Delivery 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 conditionor performing the procedure being evaluated.
“We are very honored to learn that our hospital has been awarded with distinction for our gynecologic and maternal child health care services,” said Ron Galonsky, Chief Executive Officer of South Coast Global Medical Center. “This truly has been a team effort and I would like to thank each of the hardworking surgeons, physicians, nurses, and hospital staff for the exceptional work they do every day to provide high-quality care for our patients and their families.”
“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 18 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. For example, from 2013-2015, patients having a hysterectomy in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average a 59.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication or dying than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star (Healthgrades Report to the Nation, 2017).
