Centerpoint Medical Center among four HCA Midwest hospitals named among Healthgrades 250 Best Hospitals for 2023
HCA Midwest Health announced that four of its hospitals, including Centerpoint Medical Center in Independence, have been named among the prestigious “America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023”, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients.
This achievement places Research Medical Center, Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Centerpoint Medical Center, and Menorah Medical Center in the top 5% of all hospitals nationwide for overall excellence in clinical performance across the most common healthcare conditions and procedures.
This is the third consecutive year Centerpoint Medical Center is a recipient of Healthgrades® 'America's 250 Best Hospitals' Award™ (2021-2023).
“The prestigious achievement these four hospitals have made is a testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment that leadership, physicians, nursing teams and support staff have to high-quality specialty care and improvement of human life,” HCA Midwest Health President Keith Zimmerman said.
“HCA Midwest Health continuously invests in our facilities and workforce to expand the lifesaving capabilities and technologies we offer patients. We also continue to increase our access points – whether that’s through additional physician practices, new facilities or outreach partnerships – so residents throughout the region can receive the high-quality, compassionate care they need close to home.”
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation between America’s Best 250 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 250 Best, over 160,000 lives could have been saved. Patients treated at one of the 2023 America’s 250 Best Hospitals have, on average, a 28.7% lower risk of dying than if they were treated at a hospital that did not receive the America’s 250 Best Hospitals award*.
