HCA Virginia
October 25, 2022

Richmond, VA - HCA Virginia Health System hospitals across the state have earned a total of 151 awards for exemplary care in multiple categories, according to new research released this week by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians, and health systems. Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals for specialty care.

Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Awards recognize the top 10% of hospitals across the country in 17 specialty care areas. This achievement reflects HCA Virginia hospitals' outstanding clinical outcomes for and distinguishes the HCA Virginia Health System among the nation's leading hospitals.

“Providing a safe, state-of-the-art, efficient, and effective treatment experience for our patients is our top priority,” said Elizabeth Mikula, HCA Virginia Health System vice president of quality. “Not only do these independent accolades provide our teams with recognition for their hard work, but they ensure our facilities continue to deliver the best possible care for our communities. We are extremely proud of these results.”

This year's analysis revealed significant variation in patient outcomes between hospitals with a 2023 Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Award and hospitals that did not receive the award. For example, from 2019-2021, patients treated at hospitals receiving the Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ have, on average, a 63.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award. Additionally, patients treated at hospitals which did not receive the Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ are, on average, 2.74 times more likely to experience one or more complications in the hospital than if they were treated at hospitals that did receive the award.*

“We commend the HCA Virginia Health System for their ongoing commitment to providing high-quality care to patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades. “Consumers can feel confident that recipients of the 2023 Excellence Awards have demonstrated their ability to deliver consistently exceptional outcomes.”
