Richmond, VA – HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ Hospital (including its Forest, Parham and Retreat campuses) has been named among the nation’s top 100 hospitals by independent reviewer Healthgrades, and two other HCA Virginia hospitals, Chippenham Hospital (including Johnston-Willis) and Reston Hospital Center are listed among the top 250 in the nation.
The distinction places Reston, Chippenham and Johnston-Willis, and Henrico, Parham and Retreat Doctors’ hospitals in the top five percent of nearly 4,500 hospitals assessed nationwide for superior clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.
“These recognitions are a testament to our hospitals’ commitment to patient safety,” said Elizabeth Mikula, R.N., HCA Capital Division vice president of quality. “Our patient care teams are to be commended for this outstanding achievement and dedication to providing highest quality care for our patients and their families every day.”
Healthgrades is committed to delivering the most scientifically accurate and comprehensive information about doctors and hospitals – with data insights not available anywhere else. To assess overall hospital performance, Healthgrades reviewed outcomes across more than 31 of the most common procedures and conditions. Recipients of this award have consistently delivered better than expected outcomes for their patients.
From 2018-2020, patients treated in hospitals achieving this Healthgrades recognition on average had a 27.8 percent lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive this award, as measured across 17 rated conditions and procedures where mortality is the outcome. In fact, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to these HCA Virginia facilities, and other 2022 Healthgrades America's 250 Best Hospitals, 160,256 lives could potentially have been saved from 2018-2020.*
“It is a great achievement to be awarded as one of Healthgrades’ America’s 250 Best Hospitals,” said Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades. “Now more than ever, patients are learning the importance of taking control of their health and using resources like Healthgrades to find the perfect hospital and caregiver match. We commend these three HCA Virginia hospitals for providing superior service and committing themselves to keeping their communities safe.”
