Healthgrades has named Dignity Health-Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center one of Healthgrades’ America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention™ in 2021. Each year, Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals, assesses more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide for consistent, year-over-year, superior clinical performance.
Patients treated at hospitals receiving the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention Award have, on average, a 47% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award. Also patients treated at hospitals that did not receive the award were 1.90 times more likely to die than if they were treated at hospitals that received the award.*
“While the pandemic continues, our number one priority is caring for our community,” stated Jill Welton, hospital president, Dignity Health-Glendale Memorial Hospital. “As a designated STEMI (heart attack) Receiving Center, we treat the most acute patients and successfully transition them to live longer, healthier lives with their participation in our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program and Cardiac Fitness Center. To be recognized by Healthgrades for our commitment to excellence in heart care is an honor.”
*For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide to assess hospital performance in 32 common conditions and procedures, and evaluated outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 16 states.
