For the third consecutive year, Healthgrades, a popular website that is a leader in healthcare transparency, has named Chester County Hospital one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals.
Chester County Hospital, a part of Penn Medicine, is one of just four hospitals in Pennsylvania to make the prestigious list. The others were Lankenau Medical Center, Reading Hospital, and Lancaster General Hospital.
The honor places Chester County Hospital among the top one percent of hospitals in the country for clinical excellence.
“The high-scoring evaluation reflects the excellent patient-centered care our staff and employees provide,” said Chester County Hospital CEO Michael Duncan. “My thanks go out to every one of our great employees for this achievement.”
As the No. 1 platform for finding a doctor, Healthgrades helps millions of consumers each month find and schedule appointments with their provider of choice and prepare for their appointments with best-in-class, treatment-focused content.
To assess overall hospital quality, Healthgrades analyzed the clinical performance of nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide across more than 31 of the most common procedures and conditions. Healthgrades does not take into consideration perception or popularity in analyzing and rating hospitals. Recipients of these quality awards have consistently delivered better-than-expected clinical outcomes for their patients.
“Healthgrades is putting the nation’s leading hospitals right at your fingertips,” said Dr. Brad Bowman, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “These consumer-focused awards highlight the quality and outcomes data needed in order to make an informed decision, an invaluable tool to have when considering your medical care.”
“This prestigious accolade from Healthgrades reinforces our promise to be the leading provider of care in the region and a national model for quality, service excellence, and fiscal stewardship,” said Duncan.
