Premier Health Hospitals Earn Distinctions from Healthgrades

Premier Pulse     December 2018

Premier Health hospitals each have received several accolades as part of Healthgrades’ latest quality achievement awards. Healthgrades evaluates hospital quality solely based on clinical outcomes, adjusting for risk factors such as patient age, gender, and medical condition.

Miami Valley Hospital received “America’s 100 Best Hospitals” awards in five specialties: critical care (eight consecutive years); cardiac care (six consecutive years); stroke care (five consecutive years); and, for the first time, joint replacement and prostate surgeries.

The hospital in Dayton also received several excellence awards, including the Healthgrades Pulmonary Care Excellence Award™ (11 consecutive years), and was recognized as being in the top 5 percent of hospitals in the nation for cranial neurosurgery, among other specialties. Additionally, Miami Valley Hospital was recognized as a Five-Star recipient in several specialties, including esophageal/stomach surgery, and treatment of sepsis, respiratory failure, and diabetic emergencies.

Atrium Medical Center in Middletown received the Healthgrades Critical Care Excellence Award™ for a sixth consecutive year and the Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award™ for a fourth consecutive year. The hospital also was recognized as a Five-Star recipient in multiple specialties: esophageal/stomach surgery, and the treatment of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, bowel obstruction, sepsis, and respiratory failure.

Upper Valley Medical Center in Miami County received a second consecutive Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award™ and was named a Five-Star recipient for esophageal/stomach surgeries and heart attack treatment.

“Our employees continually strive for excellence and are proud to see their efforts earn national recognition,” said Mary Boosalis, president and CEO of Premier Health. “These distinctions – in some cases, maintained year after year – demonstrate Premier Health’s ongoing commitment to providing high-quality patient care.”
