Healthgrades Names West Boca Medical Center as a 5-Star Recipient for Labor & Delivery Care

Jul 25, 2017

Boca Raton, FLA-July 25th 2017 – West Boca Medical Center achieves the prestigious 5-Star Rating for Labor & Delivery recognition from Healthgrades, a 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 for three years in a row, (2015-2017) and a Five Star Recipient for C-Section Delivery for three years in a row (2015-2017).

“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.  “In addition to having the only level III NICU in south Palm Beach County, accolades such as this make us unique to our patients.

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 17 states for years 2013 through 2015. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those who have received 5-stars and those who have not. For example:  

  • From 2013 through 2015, patients having a Vaginal Delivery in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average a 54.9% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.
  • From 2013 through 2015, patients having a C-Section Delivery in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average a 66% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.
