Pulmonary Excellence Award from Healthgrades

E-mail Print

Lumberton, NC  (October 23, 2012) – – Pulmonary care at Southeastern Regional Medical Center is in the top 5 percent in the nation according to a new report from Healthgrades, the leading provider of information to help consumers make an informed decision about a physician or hospital.

  The report, American Hospital Quality Outcomes 2013: Healthgrades Report to the Nation, evaluates how approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide performed on risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates for nearly 30 of the most common conditions treated and procedures performed from 2009 through 2011.

In its study published today, Healthgrades found that patients have a 75 percent lower risk of dying when treated at a hospital receiving five stars than if they were treated at a hospital receiving one star, based on risk-adjusted mortality rates across 18 common procedures and diagnoses, such as heart bypass surgery, stroke, and pneumonia. Healthgrades also found that 235,378 lives could have been saved during 2009-2011 if all hospitals performed at a 5-star level.

Making objective measures of hospital quality more publicly available is imperative for helping consumers make more informed provider decisions. According to new research conducted by Harris Interactive for Healthgrades, 89 percent of Americans in 27 top designated market areas believe hospital performance (defined as how well patients do at that hospital compared to others) is important but only 37 percent know where to find the information.

“Southeastern Regional Medical Center is committed to providing our patients with excellent care in a quality, compassionate and efficient manner,” said Joann Anderson, Southeastern’s president and CEO. “These ratings demonstrate that we value our patients and work hard to provide them with high quality care.”

Southeastern has continued to invest in improving both clinical and non-clinical processes through its Quest for Excellence program, expanding services and locations throughout Robeson County and the surrounding area, and acquiring state-of-the-art technology such as the da Vinci Surgical System, which features robot-assisted surgery used by doctors for a wide range of surgical procedures.

For its 2013 hospital quality outcomes analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 40 million Medicare hospitalization records for services performed at short-term, acute care hospitals nationwide. Healthgrades independently measures hospitals based on data that hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital can opt in or out of being measured, and no hospital pays to be measured. Healthgrades risk adjusts for patient demographic characteristics and clinical risk factors, thereby taking into account how sick patients were before they were admitted to the hospital.
