REEDLEY – Healthgrades, a nationwide organization that gathers comprehensive information about hospitals and their doctors to connect consumers with the best care near them, has given Reedley’s Adventist Health facility a five-star rating for their prowess in treating Pneumonia.
According to their press release, “this five-star rating reflects Adventist Health Reedley’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible and places the organization in the upper echelon of hospitals for specialty care nationwide.”
Adventist Health was one of 4,500 hospitals that Healthgrades evaluated during their 2024 hospital assessment, which looks at patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures to identify which facilities qualified as top-rated programs.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from Healthgrades because it shows our team’s continuous commitment to providing quality care,” said Dr. Gurvinder Kaur, chief medical officer for Adventist Health in the Central Valley. “Through careful processes, we continue to strive to provide the utmost care.”
During their 2024 evaluation, Healthgrades analysis revealed that the quality and performance variations between five-star and one-star hospitals continues to widen, which makes it “increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs,” according to their site.
The data Healthgrades collected showed that, on average 215,667 lives could have potentially been saved, and 149,521 patients could have avoided potential complications from 2020 through 2022, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to five-star hospitals, such as Adventist Health.
“Healthgrades congratulates Adventist Health Reedley for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades. “As health systems nationwide endeavor to elevate their quality of care, these elite facilities provide a roadmap for success. We commend Adventist Health for their dedication to excellence in patient care.”
