Healthgrades names JFK Medical Center a five-star recipient for bariatric surgery

HG Five Star for Bariatric Surgery Image 2018JFK Medical Center is proud to announce that it has achieved 5 stars for its performance in Bariatric Surgery from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.

A 5-star rating indicates that JFK Medical Center’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated. If all hospitals as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5 stars as a group, on average 219,568 lives could potentially have been saved and 164,454 complications could potentially have been avoided.

“Our 5-star rating demonstrates the clinical skills of our surgeons and clinical staff and their commitment to quality. From surgery to support, our entire JFK For Life team is dedicated to your individual needs, ” said William Oser, MD, Chief Medical Officer, JFK Health. “The 5-star rating for our bariatric program is well earned.”

“In an environment where consumers have more choices about where to receive their care, a hospital’s commitment to achieving high-quality outcomes is fundamental,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Because consumers place such value on this information, hospitals that achieve five stars for Bariatric Surgery stand out in their marketplace.”
