Fredericksburg, VA - Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center has been recognized as a Five-Star Recipient of the following Healthgrades 2019 Awards: Gynecologic Procedures and Vaginal Delivery. These 5-star ratings indicate that Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center's clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected for both Gynecologic Procedures and Vaginal Delivery.
"Our focus is on providing high quality, personalized, patient-centered care," said David McKnight, CEO of Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center. "To receive these national recognitions from Healthgrades is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our physicians, staff, and entire hospital team."
"Healthgrades recognizes hospitals for providing exceptional care in a variety of cohorts for women's health, and those that achieve a 5-star rating are focused on delivering high quality care," said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. "As healthcare trends continue to improve and evolve, patients who select a hospital that is a 5-star recipient can feel confident in their decision when it comes to women's care."
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 15 states for years 2015 through 2017. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not. For example:
- From 2015 through 2017, patients having a Gynecologic Procedure in hospitals rated 5-stars have, on average, a 63.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals rated 1-star1.
- From 2015 through 2017, patients having a Vaginal Delivery in hospitals rated 5-stars have, on average, a 43.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals rated 1-star1.
Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center is focused on offering a comprehensive approach to women's health in the Fredericksburg area community through a dedicated women's health unit. The unit provides 24-hour family centered maternity care, 10 private labor, deliver, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) rooms, a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), free childbirth education classes and tours, lactation and breastfeeding support services, breast health education, and advanced imaging services, to include digital mammography, breast ultrasound and MRI, and bone density screenings. Additionally, as a part of HCA Healthcare's Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery, the most experienced robotics program in Virginia, the hospital offers robotically assisted gynecologic surgical options. Robotic surgery typically means minimal scaring, less pain, faster recovery, and a shorter hospital stay for patients.
