Denver, CO, November 16, 2023: HealthONE announced today that five of its hospitals have been recognized as a five-star recipient for vaginal delivery in 2022, also known as natural childbirth, according to information released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This five-star distinction reflects HealthONE’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible placing the organization in the upper echelon of hospitals for Ob-Gyn care nationwide.
North Suburban Medical Center, Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, Rose Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center, and The Medical Center of Aurora have all been recognized for their deep commitment to safe, quality care for moms-to-be.
This quality award is based only on the factors that matter most to consumers – patient outcomes. The Healthgrades analysis revealed variation in care across the nation’s Ob-Gyn programs, making the ability to choose high-quality care more important than ever. Patients treated at five-star rated hospitals for Vaginal Delivery (also known as Natural Childbirth) have, on average, a 45.1% lower risk of a complication, than if treated at a one-star rated facility.
“Healthgrades congratulates HealthONE for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high-quality Ob-Gyn care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As health systems nationwide endeavor to elevate their quality of care, these elite facilities are leading the way. We commend HealthONE and their network of hospitals for their dedication to excellence in Ob-Gyn care.”
