Facilities Receive Healthgrades Recognition

April 26, 2021

HCA Healthcare’s Broward County Hospitals recently announced that they have received national recognition for demonstrating exceptional quality of care, according to research released by Healthgrades, a leading online resource connecting patients to information about physicians and hospitals. The three facilities cumulatively amassed more than 20 awards across various clinical service lines.

Healthgrades annually evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using Medicare data. Healthgrades awards are the result of rigorous analysis and have far-reaching impacts for patients. Evidence shows that patients treated at hospitals with five-star ratings have a lower risk of dying and a lower risk of experiencing one or more complications during a hospital stay than if they were treated at hospitals receiving a one-star rating in that procedure or condition.

Northwest Medical Center was recognized for clinical achievements including but not limited to:
