Boca Hospital Earns Prestigious Designation

BRRH-webBoca Raton Regional Hospital has received the 2013 Maternity Care Excellence Award™ and the 2013 Women’s Health Excellence Award™ from Healthgrades®, the leading online resource that helps consumers search, evaluate, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals. These designations place Boca Regional in the top five percent of hospitals nationwide for women’s health and in the top 10 percent for maternity care.

The women’s health study looked at 4,783 hospitals and Boca Raton Regional Hospital was one of 176 to receive the Women’s Health Excellence Award. Healthgrades found that patients treated at one of these top-rated hospitals had a 55 percent lower mortality rate across eight conditions and procedures and a 21 percent lower complication rate across seven conditions and procedures. If all of the nation’s hospitals had patient outcomes among women that are at the level of those receiving the Healthgrades award, 46,317 women could have potentially survived their hospitalization and 21,285 women could have potentially avoided a major in-hospital complication.
