Healthgrades Recognizes Saint Clare’s Denville Hospital as 2018 Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award Recipient

Denville, NJ (July 31, 2018) – Saint Clare’s Denville Hospital today announced that it has been named a 2018 Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award recipient by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This award places Saint Clare’s Denville Hospital among a select group of hospitals—the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for providing outstanding quality outcomes in gynecologic surgery.

“Saint Clare’s Denville Hospital employees and medical staff are honored to receive this recognition from Healthgrades,” said Brian Finestein, CEO, Saint Clare’s Health. “This recognition is an example of Saint Clare’s commitment to providing clinical excellence and compassionate care to our local communities.”

The physicians and staff of Saint Clare’s departments of surgery and obstetrics/gynecology are committed to providing women specialized care and reducing the risk of surgical complications. This commitment is evident in all areas of the Saint Clare’s Women’s Health Center including gynecological oncology, The Katena Center for Mother and Child, and our Breast Imaging Center.

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance in gynecologic surgery, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcome data for all patients (all-payer data) made available by 15 individual states and the District of Columbia for years 2014 through 2016. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality for gynecologic surgery.

  • From 2014 through 2016, patients treated in hospitals receiving the Healthgrades Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award, had, on average, a 46.3 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award*.
  • From 2014 to 2016, if all hospitals in the analysis performed similarly to those receiving the Healthgrades Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award, complications could have potentially been avoided for 12,637 patients
