Healthgrades Names West Boca Medical Center 5-Star Recipient in Labor & Delivery Care For Fourth Straight YearAug 3, 2018
Boca Raton, FLA - July 31st 2018 – West Boca Medical Center today announced that it has been named a 5-star recipient for Vaginal Delivery and C-Section Delivery for four straight years (2015-2018) 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.
“People in our community have a choice as to where they will go for their optimal birthing experience and this recognition is confirmation that our hospital has proven to be one of the best in our area when it comes to labor and delivery services, said Mitch Feldman, CEO at West Boca Medical Center. “Accolades such as this make us unique to our patients.
“With more options than ever on where to receive care, consumers need to do their homework,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that have received a 5-star rating have shown dedication and expertise, resulting in high-quality outcomes for patients.”
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 15 states and the District of Columbia for years 2014 through 2016. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not. For example:
- From 2014 through 2016, patients having a vaginal or C-section birth in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average, a lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.*
