Healthgrades recognizes with five-star awards
McAllen Medical Center and Edinburg Regional Medical Center are both recipients of a five-star rating for various obstetrical and gynecological measures. The recognition comes from Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians as well as hospitals.
Both South Texas Health System facilities are recognized for excellence in quality in vaginal delivery and C-section delivery. In addition, each location is a five-star recipients for gynecologic procedures. This is the third year in a row that the hospitals have received the five-star rating for both types of delivery.
“Consumers place high-quality outcomes at the top of their wish list when selecting a hospital, so health systems that have achieved this particular distinction stand out among their peers,” said Dr. Brad Bowman, chief medical officer of Healthgrades. “Especially in an environment where consumers have more choices than ever before about where to receive care, a hospital’s commitment to achieving high-quality outcomes for their patients is more important than ever.”
The facilities are not the only for STHS to receive recognition from Healthgrades. McAllen Heart Hospital is also the recipient of many recognitions, including one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery and one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention and Cardiac Care.
