Fairview Park Hospital has been named a Five-Star Recipient for surgery and multiple treatments according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.
Fairview Park Hospital was awarded a Five-Star Recipient for:
- Five-Star Recipient for Gallbladder Surgery
- Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Heart Attack
- Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Pneumonia
Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 31 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.*
This analysis shows 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 1-star rating in that procedure or condition. From 2018 through 2020, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5-stars as a group, on average, 218,141 lives could potentially have been saved, and complications in 156,050 patients could potentially have been avoided.*
“Consumers are increasingly becoming aware of the differences of care provided by different hospitals. Consumers can feel confident that hospitals receiving a Healthgrades 5-star rating have demonstrated exceptional outcomes and their ability to provide quality care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades.
“Our team is laser focused on quality care for every patient, every time,” said Donald R. Avery, Chief Executive Officer and President, of Fairview Park Hospital. “We are proud to receive these five-star awards as it is a testament to many departments working together to best serve our patients.”
For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated 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 and evaluated outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 16 states. 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).
