Healthgrades Names Chesapeake Regional Healthcare Among Top Performers in State: 5-Star Recipient for C-Section and Vaginal Delivery
Chesapeake Regional Healthcare (CRH) has been named a 5-star recipient for C-Section Delivery and Vaginal Delivery by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This 5-star rating indicates that the hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.
“We have been delivering babies in our BirthPlace for more than 30 years and are very proud to receive this recognition,” said Reese Jackson, President & CEO of CRH. “These awards are a testament to the great work of our experienced physicians and staff.”
“With more options than ever on where to receive care, consumers need to do their homework,” said Brad Bowman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that have received a 5-star rating have shown dedication and expertise, resulting in high-quality outcomes for patients.”
To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 15 states and the District of Columbia for years 2014 through 2016. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not. For example:
- From 2014 through 2016, patients having a vaginal Delivery in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average, 42.7 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.*
These metrics, along with other quality metrics and patient experience scores, indicate that Chesapeake Regional’s Labor & Delivery unit is providing excellent care for the new mothers in our community,” said Amber Egyud, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nursing Officer of CRH.
