Recognizing Healthcare Excellence®
The SafeCare Group analyzed data on more than 4,500 US hospitals and ranked hospitals performance in five empirical areas of care: Outcomes of Care; Infections of Care; Safety of Care; Efficiency of Care; and Unplanned Visits of Care.
The 100 SafeCare Hospitals excelled in 40 evidence-based metrics like low medical and surgical infections, low 30-Day mortality rates, low medical and surgical complications, low 30-Day medical and surgical readmissions, and overall cost per patient. Memorial Hospital achieved the top 1% in the nation.
Hospitals that perform poorly on these quality, safety, and efficiency metrics receive a financial penalty from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid. Only about two percent of US hospitals earn the prestigious 100 SafeCare Hospitals distinction.
“While all US hospitals achieving improvements deserve recognition, Memorial Hospital and those achieving 100 SafeCare Hospitals distinction are leading the way,” says Dr. Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, Chairman and CEO of The SafeCare Group. “Congratulations to Memorial Hospital on achieving top 1% in the nation for low infections, low complications, low readmissions, low mortality, and great value.”
Each year, an estimated 440,000 patients die from medical errors. Millions more are affected from shabby care, bad treatments, and poor services from hospitals.
We listened to the numerous emails and letters of complaints, suggestions, and feedback from patients and created an easy tool for hospital consumers to find and compare hospitals. Our members are down-to-earth folks seeking to find dependable hospitals that deliver high-quality care.
100SafeCareHospitals.com is a consumer-oriented service that can help consumers make informed decisions about their health care. The Star Ratings include quality measures for the routine care an individual receives when being treated for heart attacks and pneumonia to quality measures that focus on hospital-acquired infections and hospital-acquired complications.
The 100 SafeCare Hospitals ratings have the two-pronged goal of giving objective transparency to consumers and incentivizing hospitals to improve care and reduce unnecessary errors that harm patients.
