Healthgrades Recognizes Saint Clare’s Denville Hospital as 2018 Gynecologic
Surgery Excellence Award™
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
hospital quality methodologies.
