2017: A Year In Review for West Boca Medical Center

Mar 29, 2018

West Boca Medical Center reflects back on 2017’s top achievements. The hospital is proud of the dedicated physicians, staff and volunteers who made this year’s long list of accomplishments possible. Below are some of the highlights.

Gold Plus Award for Heart and Stroke Failure Care

West Boca Medical Center received the Get With The Guidelines®-Heart and Stroke Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific qual- ity improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology Foundation’s secondary prevention guidelines for patients with heart failure. The award also recognizes the hospital’s commitment and success in ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evi- dence.

New 3D Mammography to Better Diagnose Breast Cancer

The hospital started offering 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) for breast cancer screening. Breast tomosynthesis produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue helping radiologists identify and characterize individual breast struc- tures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. The center’s Selenia® Dimensions® breast tomosynthesis system is made by Hologic, and offers exception- ally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient com- fort, and a tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diag- nostic performance for all breast types.

New Senior Care ER

Adapting to accommodate the needs of the aging population, the hospital opened a Senior Care Emergency Room. The Senior Care ER at West Boca Medical Center, will have four beds that will focus on care for senior patients, and is designed to increase patient comfort, and provide greater aid for those patients with visual and hearing impairments. The Senior Care ER unit will be equipped to help increase patient comfort, reduce wait time and provide up-to-the-minute patient status, as well as immediate access to film-based radiological images. It will have enhanced lighting, nonskid floor surfaces to help prevent falls, thicker mattresses for comfort, easy access lounge chairs, and handrails throughout the ER to make our senior patients feel as comfortable as possible while we care for them.

Annual Cereal Drive

West Boca Medical Center is always a leader in the community effort to provide area children and adults struggling with hunger with a healthy breakfast from the end of the school year throughout the summer months through its Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive benefitting Boca Helping Hands. Hospital employees donated healthy cereal to provide a healthy option to those struggling with hunger in the community. All financial donations made during the campaign were matched by West Boca Medical Center’s parent company, Tenet Healthcare, up to $100,000.

Healthgrades Names Hospital 5-Star Recipient for Labor & Delivery Care

For the third year in a row, West Boca was named a 5-star recipient for Labor & 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 condition or performing the procedure being evaluated. West Boca Medical Center is now a Five Star Recipient for Vaginal Delivery and a Five Star Recipient for C-Section Delivery.
