Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center today announced that it has been named a 5-star recipient for Labor and Delivery and Gynecologic Surgery 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.
“This recognition is a reflection of the high-quality care that we are dedicated to providing to the women in our community,” said Natalie Mussi, President & CEO. “Our clinical and professional staff are committed to providing excellent care, in a healing environment and ensuring that our patients receive best possible outcomes.”
“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, 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:
- Patients treated in hospitals receiving the Labor and Delivery Excellence Award, have, on average, a 53.8% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the Labor and Delivery Excellence Award.
- Patients treated in hospitals receiving the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award, have, on average, a 47.6% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award.
Since 1968, Los Robles has been helping families prepare for their baby's arrival in a safe and nurturing environment. The Birthing Center at Los Robles includes the latest medical technology, spacious birthing suites, mother-baby suites and a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Los Robles Hospital is also home to skilled gynecologic surgeons that provide a wide range of treatment options for a variety of conditions. Robotic surgery may also be an option for complex gynecologic conditions, which can result in shorter hospital stays, less pain, lower risk of infection, and a quicker recovery so that patients may resume their daily activities.
