Coshocton, Ohio (January 29, 2020) — Coshocton Regional Medical Center is 5-star rated for the treatment of heart failure according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.
Coshocton Regional Medical Center is a member of Prime Healthcare, one of the nation’s largest health systems with 46 hospitals in 14 states. This year, Prime hospitals received a combined 295 awards from Healthgrades including 5-Star designations, Specialty Excellence Awards and America’s 100 Best By Specialty.
Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using Medicare data. This analysis shows that patients treated at hospitals receiving a 5-star rating 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 1-star rating in that procedure or condition.
“Hospital quality has never been more important, and consumers are becoming more aware of the importance of researching where they receive care before they visit a hospital for a specific procedure or condition,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Healthgrades. “Hospitals that receive a Healthgrades 5-star rating for the Treatment of Heart Failure demonstrate exceptional outcomes and their ability to provide quality care for patients.”
“We take pride in the achievements of our hospital,” said Stephanie Conn, CEO. “Our staff members work tirelessly to put patient care first. Our continued commitment to heart care in this community is reaffirmed by receiving this Five-Star rating.”
