Odessa Regional Medical Center (ORMC) announced that it has been named a 5-star recipient for Women’s Care by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This 5-star rating indicates that the hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.
“We constantly strive to provide the highest quality care to our patients throughout every stage of life,” said Stacey Gerig Brown, President of Odessa Regional Medical Center. “In every step of the delivery process, our Women’s Care Team works to bring the highest quality to our patients and their newborn children.”
“Consumers place high-quality outcomes at the top of their wish list when selecting a hospital, so health systems that have achieved this particular distinction stand out among their peers,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Healthgrades. “Especially in an environment where consumers have more choices than ever before about where to receive care, a hospital’s commitment to achieving high-quality outcomes for their patients is more important than ever.”
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 17 states for years 2013 through 2015. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those who have received 5-stars and those who have not. For example:
- From 2013 through 2015, patients receiving Women’s Care services in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average a 54.9% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.
