HealthGrades Awards for Baptist Medical Center in 2015

Baptist Medical Center is among the Best 100 Hospitals in the Nation for 

  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Joint Replacement
  • Prostate Surgeries

as recognized by Healthgrades, America's leading independent healthcare ratings organization. The Healthgrades designation for America’s 100 Best Hospitals represents the top 2% of hospitals nationwide.

Additionally, no hospital in Jackson has more 5-Star Ratings than Baptist Medical Center in 2015, as recognized by HealthGrades.

Top Two Percent in the Nation for Patient Safety, Patient Experience

Healthgrades has awarded Baptist Medical Center its Outstanding Patient Experience Award for 2015, and its Patient Safety Excellence Award for 2015.

Healthgrades evaluated 3,558 hospitals across the United States in BOTH areas of patient safety and patient satisfaction/experience. Baptist is one of only 93 hospitals, out of the 3,558 hospitals evaluated, in the United States to win both of these awards, puting Baptist Medical Center in the Top 2% of hospitals in the country.

What the Healthgrades Ratings Mean

As America's leading independent healthcare ratings organization, the Healthgrades rating method offers a uniquely objective and comprehensive overview of hospital services. Healthgrades does all the following: 

  • evaluates the performance of approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide on risk-adjusted mortality and complications rates for 33 of the most common conditions treated and procedures.
  • independently measures hospitals based on data that hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital can opt in or out of the analysis, and no hospital pays to be measured. 
  • risk adjusts for patient demographic characteristics and clinical risk factors, thereby taking into account how sick patients are upon admission. 
  • bases its analysis solely on objective measures of clinical quality outcomes. Other organizations factor in subjective measures such as reputation or even technologies used at a hospital.

According to the Healthgrades 2015 Report to the Nation, if all hospitals in the United States as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5-stars as a group, on average 228,426 lives could potentially have been saved and 169,298 complications could potentially have been avoided for the period 2011-2013.
