San Jose, CA – Regional Medical Center today announced that it is one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This achievement puts Regional Medical Center in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures. This is the 2nd consecutive year Regional Medical Center is among America’s Best.
Regional Medical Center also received America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Critical Care Award™ for 2023 for the 2nd consecutive year. The award recognizes hospitals with superior clinical outcomes in treating pulmonary embolism, respiratory system failure, sepsis, and diabetic emergencies. Regional Medical Center was also recognized with America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Stroke Care Award™ for 2023 which recognizes a hospital with superior clinical outcomes in the care and treatment of stroke.
“We strive to provide high quality specialty care for our patients. The processes we have put into place and the investments in technology shows our commitment to excellence. I am proud of this recognition and our physicians, nurses, and team members,” said Ken West, President and Chief Executive Officer of Regional Medical Center.
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. According to Healthgrades, 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.
“We’re proud to recognize Regional Medical Center as one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023,” said Brad Bowman MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, Regional Medical Center consistently delivers better-than-expected outcomes for the patients in their community and is setting a high national standard for clinical excellence.”
