Five Stars for Knee and Valve Surgery at Dignity Health

Dignity Health — Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center has been named a 2018 five-star recipient for knee surgery and valve surgery, following this year’s evaluation from Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.
Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.
These achievements are part of findings by Healthgrades featured in their 2018 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals regionally and nationally.
“It is rewarding to know we are achieving our mission and ensuring we continue to meet the needs of our patients while providing excellent care to all,” stated Julie Sprengel, senior vice president, Operations, Dignity Health SoCal and interim president, Glendale Memorial Hospital.
In addition, the hospital earned five stars for vaginal delivery, C-section delivery and hysterectomy.
“Consumers place high value on information about hospital quality and use it to evaluate their choices for care,” said Dr. Brad Bowman, chief medical officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that have achieved recognition for their quality outcomes prove their commitment to their patients and their community at large.”
