CAMC is the only hospital in West Virginia to be named as one of the 100 Best Hospitals™ in the country by Healthgrades, an online resource for information about physicians and hospitals. This is the second year in a row CAMC has achieved this premier designation.
The recipients of the America’s 100 Best Hospitals Award™ demonstrate superior clinical outcomes across the majority of common inpatient conditions and procedures and sustained this performance for at least three consecutive years.
“Clinical excellence is our top priority, and to be named as one of the best hospitals in the country for the second year based on the quality of our care is a testament to our dedicated physicians, clinicians and staff,” said Dave Ramsey, CAMC President and CEO. “Our success comes from everyone working together and being committed to doing the right thing for every patient, every day.”
Hospitals that are among America’s 100 Best™ represent the top 2 percent in the nation for consistent clinical excellence and have consecutively received the Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence™ (DHACE) for at least the last three years. CAMC has earned the DHACE every year for the last five years.
“Hospitals that have achieved America’s Best Hospitals™ distinction have sustained high quality outcomes for their patients over many years and often, offer programs that engage consumers and their overall communities in their care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Healthgrades’ Chief Medical Officer.
Healthgrades research shows that America’s Best Hospitals also outperform their peers in treating a core group of conditions that account for more than 80 percent of mortalities in areas evaluated by Healthgrades, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, respiratory failure, sepsis and stroke.
