The Medical Center of Aurora Achieves 2019 Healthgrades Women’s Care Awards in Gynecologic Surgery & Procedures
Aurora, CO, August 09, 2019 --( HCA Healthcare/HealthONE’s The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA) today announced that it received a 2019 Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award™ and, for the second year in a row, a 5-Star Rating for Gynecologic Procedures, from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals.

“I’m very proud of our Women’s Services colleagues and physicians,” said Rachel Miles, Chief Nursing Officer at The Medical Center of Aurora and Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital. “Our focus is on providing high quality care as well as a great patient experience. This recognition from Healthgrades indicates that we are focusing in the right areas. I am honored to work alongside such skilled, compassionate caregivers.”

The Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award places TMCA among a select group of hospitals - in the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for providing outstanding quality outcomes in gynecologic surgery. The 5-star rating indicates that TMCA’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected for gynecologic procedures.

“Healthgrades recognizes hospitals for providing exceptional care in a variety of cohorts for women’s health, and those that achieve a 5-star rating are focused on delivering high quality care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “As healthcare trends continue to improve and evolve, patients who select a hospital that is a 5-star recipient can feel confident in their decision when it comes to women’s care.”

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance in gynecologic surgery, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcomes data for all patients (all-payer data) made available by 15 individual states for years 2015 through 2017. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality for gynecologic surgery and a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not.
