West Boca Medical Center Recognized with six Five-Star Achievements from Healthgrades
West Boca Medical Center announced today it has achieved numerous five-star ratings for specialty care, according to new research released by Healthgrades, a leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. West Boca Medical Center’s Five-Star ratings include Vaginal Delivery, C-Section Delivery, Colorectal Surgeries, Treatment of GI Bleed, Treatment of Sepsis, and Treatment of Respiratory Failure. These five-star ratings reflect West Boca Medical Center’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible and places the organization in the upper echelon of hospitals for specialty care nationwide.
“This remarkable achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing exceptional patient care and ensuring the highest standards of quality,” Jerad Hanlon, West Boca Medical Center CEO, said. “We are dedicated to serving our community with excellence, and these awards validate our relentless pursuit of healthcare excellence."
Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and complications. By focusing on what matters most–patient outcomes–Healthgrades ratings provide critical feedback for both patients and hospitals. By offering easy access to objective performance measures, Healthgrades gives consumers the information they need to find a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. And, by shining a light on strengths and weaknesses, Healthgrades ratings help direct hospitals to opportunities for clinical improvement. The 2024 hospital assessment evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.
The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed that the variation in performance between five-star and one-star hospitals continues to widen, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs. From 2020 through 2022, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to five-star hospitals, on average, 215,667 lives could potentially have been saved, and 149,521 patients could have avoided potential complications.*
“Healthgrades congratulates West Boca Medical Center for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As health systems nationwide endeavor to elevate their quality of care, these elite facilities provide a roadmap for success. We commend West Boca Medical Center for their dedication to excellence in patient care.”
