Houston Medical Center Named One of Healthgrades America's 100 Best Hospitals in 2013

To be recognized with this distinction, hospitals must have been designated as a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence™ for a minimum of four consecutive years and had risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates among the lowest five percent in the nation. Healthgrades’ risk-adjusted methodology considers important differences in patient demographic and clinical characteristics, allowing for a more accurate and valid comparison of clinical outcomes at different hospitals.

“Houston Medical Center and the entire Houston Healthcare team are proud of this recognition because it signifies the dedication and commitment of our staff and physicians to providing quality health care on a daily basis,” says Cary Martin, Chief Executive Officer for Houston Healthcare. “We work diligently to identify areas where we can improve our quality initiatives and patient safety measures. By consistently looking at the way we deliver care, it allows us to provide enhanced care for all our patients and their families.”

On average, patients treated at America’s 100 Best hospitals had nearly a 30 percent lower risk of death. If all hospitals lowered their mortality rates to the level of Houston Medical Center, and the other 99 distinguished members of this group, 165,636 lives could have potentially been saved nationwide between 2009 and 2011. Houston Medical Center is one of only four hospitals in the state to receive this recognition.

“Hospitals earn this distinction by providing better than expected outcomes across a broad spectrum of conditions and procedures over an extended period of time,” said Evan Marks, EVP Informatics and Strategy. “Consumers can expect a commitment to exceptional clinical quality care when selecting among Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals.”
