Weatherford — Medical City Weatherford is 5-star rated for Total Knee Replacement outcomes according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.
Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using Medicare data, and additionally analyzes outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 16 states. The analysis shows that patients treated at hospitals receiving a 5-star rating have a lower risk of dying and a lower risk of experiencing one or more complications during a hospital stay that if they were treated at hospitals receiving a 1-star rating in that procedure or condition.
“I am so proud of our team and everyone involved with ensuring that our patients are provided with superior care when receiving total knee replacements,” says Sean Kamber, CEO at Medical City Weatherford. “This recognition is another reason why Medical City Weatherford is the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in Parker County.”
“Hospital quality has never been more important, and consumers are becoming more aware of the importance of researching where they receive care before they visit a hospital for a specific procedure or condition,” says Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that receive a Healthgrades 5-star rating for total knee replacement demonstrate exceptional outcomes and their ability to provide quality care for patients.”
