Holy Cross Tops Clinical Quality List

Providence Holy Cross has received the Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence Award from HealthGrades, a health care ratings company. The Mission Hills medical center was among 270 hospitals in the nation that received the award. This was the fourth consecutive year that HealthGrades named Holy Cross among the top 5 percent of hospitals in the nation for overall clinical quality. Patients admitted to HealthGrades’ distinguished hospitals are typically 27 percent less likely to die and 8 percent less likely to suffer from major complications. The HealthGrades study, which included 5,000 hospitals, also found that Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence improved patient outcomes at a greater rate in more procedures and diagnoses than all other hospitals, lowering risk-adjusted mortality rates from 2005-07 by an average of 18 percent. This is the seventh year that HealthGrades has independently analyzed the clinical quality performance of hospitals across the country in 26 procedures and diagnoses.
