Healthgrades ranks hospital among America’s 100 best; multiple five-star ratings received.

Sisters of Charity Hospital was nationally recognized by Healthgrades, the leading online resource helping consumers make informed decisions in order to find the right doctor, the right hospital, and the right care. Both of Sisters Hospital Campuses, Main Street and St. Joseph, received multiple 2018 Specialty Excellence awards including; One of America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award™ and a Joint Replacement Excellence Award™. Additionally, both campuses also received multiple 5-star awards in the Orthopedic category for the third year in a row, including; Total knee replacement, total hip replacement and hip fracture treatment.

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on risk adjusted mortality and in-hospital complications. Its analysis is based on approximately 40 million Medicare discharges from more than 4,500 hospitals for the most recent three-year time period available. A five-star rating is based on lower than expected complication rates for patients who have an orthopedic surgery in a hospital while the Excellence Award recognizes only the top 10% of hospitals in the nation. Both accolades are a reflection of Sisters Hospital high quality, team based, patient-centered care.

“Quality ratings are one of the most important resources people should use when seeking out a physician referral and hospital for procedure performance outcomes,” said Christina Kane, Vice President Musculoskeletal Service Line Service for Catholic Health “It’s the gold standard by which everyone in the healthcare industry should be measured and should strive to achieve. Sisters Hospital Orthopedic team is giving patients care they can trust and an experience that they deserve.”

“Our commitment to consistently providing the highest quality in care and safety for our patients is reflective in our positive outcomes,” said Martin Boryszak, President and CEO of Sisters of Charity Hospital. “The Healthgrades Excellence Awards, including being among the nation’s best hospital for Orthopedics, and 5 Star Ratings, are a reflection of the dedication, skill and hard work of every member of the hospital staff. They all deserve our thanks and congratulations for this outstanding achievement.”
