Parkland Medical Center has achieved 5 stars for its performance in Coronary Interventional Procedures and named a recipient of the 2018 Coronary Intervention Excellence Award™ from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. The award places Parkland Medical Center in the top 10% in the Nation for Coronary Interventional Procedures in 2018.
“These nationally recognized quality achievements are a testament to the consistent excellence in care provided at Parkland Medical Center,” said Jeff Scionti, CEO of Parkland Medical Center. “Our team of clinicians and staff in collaboration with the outstanding EMS personnel in the communities we serve work together to provide high quality care to our patients each day.”
Results of the report are part of new findings and data released by Healthgrades in the Healthgrades 2018 Report to the Nation. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.* The new report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals regionally and nationally. A 5-star rating indicates that Parkland Medical Center’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.
