Reston, VA (August 3, 2018) — Reston Hospital Center announced today that it has been named a recipient of the Healthgrades 2018 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award™. The achievement recognizes Reston Hospital Center for exceptional clinical outcomes while caring for women during labor and immediately after delivery of their newborn, as well as women undergoing gynecologic procedures.
“This recognition highlights the efforts of our entire Women’s Care Team to provide the women in our community the highest quality of care, close to home,” said John Deardorff, President and CEO of Reston Hospital Center and HCA’s Northern Virginia Market. “It’s an honor to be this community’s trusted health provider when it comes to growing families.”
“Hospital recipients of the Healthgrades 2018 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award have proven their commitment to quality care and their patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Healthgrades. “The award serves as a helpful indicator to consumers and helps them search for hospitals that achieve exceptional outcomes.”
Healthgrades analyzed patient outcome data for all patients (all-payer data) made available by 15 individual states and the District of Columbia for years 2014 through 2016. During this time, if all hospitals in the analysis performed similarly to those that received the Healthgrades 2018 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award, complications could have potentially been avoided for 116,145 patients.*
Additionally, from 2014 through 2016, patients treated in hospitals receiving the Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award, had, on average a 32.8 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award.*
This is the 2nd year in a row that Reston Hospital Center has been recognized with both the Labor and Delivery Excellence Award and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award.
