West Georgia Health ranks in Top 10 percent of U.S. and Georgia Hospitals

for Medical Excellence in 3 Categories

 

LaGrange, GA — CareChex®, a Quality Rating Service of Comparion®, an independent healthcare research company, has ranked West Georgia Health # 5 of 119 hospitals in Georgia, #128 of 3,987 hospitals in the nation and # 52 of 1,556 Southern Region hospitals for Medical Excellence in Overall Medical Care for 2015.  The only Georgia hospitals that ranked higher than West Georgia Health are Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville at #1; Tanner Medical Center in Carrollton at #2; Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta at #3 and Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville at #4.

 

In addition, West Georgia Health has ranked among the top 10 percent of all U.S., Southern Region and Georgia hospitals for Medical Excellence in Overall Hospital Care as well as Overall Surgical Care.

 

Six other West Georgia Health clinical categories have ranked in the top 10 percent in all U.S. and Georgia hospitals for Medical Excellence including: Cardiac Care, Gallbladder Removal, Gastrointestinal Care, Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage, and General Surgery.

 

The 2015 CareChex rankings also placed West Georgia Health in the Top 10 percent of all U.S. and Georgia Hospitals for Patient Safety in the following categories: Overall Hospital Care; Overall Medical Care; Overall Surgical Care; Gastrointestinal Care; General Surgery; Orthopedic Care and Pulmonary Care.

 

“We don’t seek out awards or special recognition — that’s not part of our culture,” said West Georgia Health President and CEO Jerry Fulks. “So when you get recognized by an independent third party that has conducted research to identify top ranked medical excellence and patient safety, that’s just so gratifying.”

 

These rankings are based on independent research conducted by CareChex® — a division of Comparion®, which determines these rankings via its National Quality Rating Database. This database includes virtually all general, acute, non-federal U.S. hospitals, and incorporates the most recent three years of federal fiscal year data (October through September and runs approximately two years behind the current calendar year.

 

The CareChex® rating service uses both public and proprietary information to compare the quality of hospital and physician care to national, state and local standards. The program analyzes a variety of process, outcome and patient satisfaction measures to assign a composite score and rating. You can go to http://www.carechex.com/ to learn more about the specifics in how these ratings are determined and to see how West Georgia Health compares with other hospitals throughout the state and the nation.

Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set in Alabama during the Great Depression, this powerful play follows six year-old Scout Finch, whose father has been appointed to defend a young black man wrongfully accused of a grave crime. When she asks why he’s doing it in the face of such public upset, Scout’s father replies, “Because if I didn’t, I couldn’t hold my head up.” As the trial progresses, Scout witnesses her community confront a tense tug of war between justice and racism, truth and prejudice. This timeless classic compels us to take an honest look at our nation’s past and our moral responsibilities to each other. Show length: 90 minutes

What do you think about our public school system?

 

The Chamber is a member institution of the Troup County Center for Strategic Planning.  The group has tackled several issues over the past six years, including unemployment ( creation of troupcountyworks.com and Troup Trained program), poverty (creation of Circles of Troup County) and education (creation of thINC College & Career Academy).  At the December meeting, board members reviewed overall challenges facing our community and determined that despite launching the college and career academy, there was a need for further improvement of our public school system.  Each board member was asked to poll its constituency with three simple questions.  Click on the link below (or copy and paste the address in your web browser) to voice your opinion.  The survey will be open to Chamber members through February 13.  Let’s provide constructive input from the business community’s perspective!
