SANTA MARIA, CA – January 18, 2023 – Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC) today announced that it is one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for a third consecutive year (2021-2023), according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This achievement puts Marian in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures.
“We are especially proud of this incredible accomplishment, ranking us among an elite group of hospitals with exceptional clinical outcomes for three years in a row,” says Sue Andersen, President and CEO, Marian Regional Medical Center. “Our entire health care team shares this achievement, which demonstrates our commitment to quality, safety, and patient care. As one of the top five percent of hospitals across the Nation recognized for superior clinical performance, this remarkable acknowledgment serves as a testament to our pledge to provide the highest quality of care to our community.”
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation between America’s Best 250 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 250 Best, over 160,000 lives could have been saved.* Patients treated at one of the 2023 America’s 250 Best Hospitals have, on average, a 28.7% lower risk of dying than if they were treated at a hospital that did not receive the America’s 250 Best Hospitals award.*
“We’re proud to recognize Marian Regional Medical Center as one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023,” said Brad Bowman MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, Marian Regional Medical Center consistently delivers better-than-expected outcomes for the patients in their community and is setting a high national standard for clinical excellence.”
