Garnet Health Medical Center is five-star rated for Stroke care outcomes for the fourth year in a row according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.
“Providing high-quality stroke care to our community is our highest priority,” said Kavneet Kaur, MD, MPH, Neurology Services Medical Director at Garnet Health Doctors and Stroke Program Medical Director at Garnet Health. “Our clinical and support staff are committed to providing our patients exceptional care.”
Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 31 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.
This analysis shows that patients treated at hospitals receiving a five-star rating have a lower risk of mortality 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.
Additionally, from 2018-2020, patients treated for Stroke care in hospitals with five-stars for in-hospital mortality have, on average 51.7% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals with 1-star for in-house mortality.* Similarly, patients treated for Stroke care in hospitals with 1-star for in-hospital mortality are, on average, 2.1 times more likely to die than if they were treated in hospitals with five-stars for in-hospital mortality.*
