Centura Mercy Hospital a 2022 Healthgrades 5-Star recipient for C-Sections

August 2, 2022

Centura Mercy Hospital is a 2022 5-Star recipient for C-Sections as recognized by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This 5-star rating indicates that Mercy Hospital clinical outcomes for C-Sections are significantly better than expected, and places Mercy among the national leaders in C-Sections.

“Mercy Hospital is deeply proud to earn 5-star recognition by Healthgrades for cesarian section births,” said Patrick Sharp, CEO of Centura Mercy Hospital. “Our dedicated team of caregivers serve expectant parents with compassion and expertise, bringing new life into our community with care, of which this recognition is a testament.”

Healthgrades analyzed all-payer data for 16 states from 2018 through 2020. 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 2018 through 2020, patients undergoing a gynecologic procedure in hospitals rated 5 stars have, on average, a 65.9% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals rated 1 star.*

“It is critical for patients to select care based on three key pieces of information – hospital quality, facility and care team experience with your condition/procedure, and compatibility – and this 5-star distinction is another benchmark to help make those decisions easier,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and head of Data Science, Healthgrades. “We are proud to name Mercy Hospital as a 2022 5-Star recipient for C-Sections and look forward to their continued efforts to deliver better clinical outcomes for patients during natural childbirth, C-section deliveries, and gynecologic procedures.”
