Houston Healthcare Recognized as One of Healthgrades 2013 Women's Health Excellence Award Recipients

Houston Healthcare is pleased to announce it has achieved the Healthgrades 2013 Women’s Health Excellence Award™ according to Healthgrades, the leading online resource that helps consumers search, evaluate, compare and connect with physician and hospitals. The recognition distinguishes Houston Medical Center as a top performing hospital in women’s health, which includes care provided to women for common conditions and procedures treated in the hospital. 

Women’s health outcomes were studied across several aspects of care: Women’s Medicine, Women’s Cardiovascular Procedures, and Women’s Bone & Joint Health.

 “Providing patient-focused, high quality patient care is of utmost importance to our staff, physicians and Board members,” states Cary Martin, Chief Executive Officer for Houston Healthcare. “This recognition signifies the commitment and dedication by our team to ensure quality outcomes and improve the overall patient experience.”

“Women tend to fare worse than men in the treatment of significant medical conditions like cardiovascular disease, so it is important for women to understand their risks and select a hospital accordingly,” said Brad Bowman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades.  “The Healthgrades 2013 Women’s Health Excellence Award recipients have demonstrated exceptional performance and a dedicated approach to delivering superior quality of care for women.”

Healthgrades 2013 Women’s Health Excellence Award recipient hospitals have the potential to save women’s lives.  Compared to hospitals that performed in the bottom 10% from 2009 through 2011, Healthgrades Women’s Health Excellence Award recipients as a group had a 55% lower mortality rate across eight conditions and procedures and a 21% lower complication rate across seven conditions and procedures.[1]  If all hospitals nationwide performed at the level of the Healthgrades Women’s Health Excellence Award hospitals:
