Today Orange Park Medical Center announced that for the third year in a row it has been named a 5-star recipient in multiple categories pertaining to women's care by Healthgrades. Healthgrades is 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. The areas receiving the 5-star rating at Orange Park Medical Center include Obstetrics and Gynecology, Labor and Delivery, Vaginal Delivery and C-Section Delivery.
"It's our providers and staff who have really earned this recognition," says Suzanne Jones, Director of Women and Children's Services at Orange Park Medical Center. "Consistently receiving 5-stars year after year truly shows their commitment to providing superior care for our patients."
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance in these categories, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcome data for virtually every hospital in the 15 states and the District of Columbia that provide all-payer state data for the years 2014-2016. Healthgrades has found that the variation in hospital performance makes a significant difference in terms of clinical outcomes.
