U.S. News & World Report Names Delray Medical Center a High Performing Hospital for Heart Failure & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

August 8 2019 – Delray Medical Center is recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report.
 
The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 5th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.
 
Delray Medical Center earned a “High Performing” rating for heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) procedures, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for heart failure & COPD care.
 
“It is an honor to be recognized as a high performance hospital in heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease from U.S. News & World Report, because it means we are doing our job in providing patients with the highest quality possible,” said Maggie Gill, chief executive officer at Delray Medical Center. “Our outstanding physicians, nurses and staff earned this achievement on behalf of the hospital.” 
 
For the 2019-20 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 57 earned this rating in all nine Procedures & Conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
 
The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as risk-adjusted outcome rates, volume, quality of nursing and other care-related indicators.
 
The Procedures & Conditions ratings were produced by U.S. News analysts.
