Casa Colina Hospital recognized for patient safety excellence

Casa Colina Hospital announced today that it is a recipient of the Healthgrades 2019 Patient Safety Excellence AwardTM. The award recognizes hospital excellence in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially preventable complications during their hospital stay.
 
This distinction places Casa Colina Hospital among the top 10 percent of hospitals reporting patient safety data as evaluated by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals.

The rating examines 14 types of serious complications that could occur during or after surgeries or procedures as defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, including bed sores, respiratory failure, and hip fracture.

Healthgrades also named Casa Colina Hospital a Five-Star Recipient in the “Treatment of Pneumonia” and “Total Knee Replacement” categories. These five-star ratings indicate Casa Colina Hospital’s clinical outcomes in these categories are significantly better than expected.

“Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare is proud to be nationally recognized by Healthgrades, and we will continue to prioritize patient safety as we strive to lead and define excellence in specialized medical and rehabilitative care,” said Felice L. Loverso, Casa Colina CEO and President. “I am thankful to Casa Colina staff, leadership, and the board of directors for holding us to the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care.”
