September 23, 2019 — Englewood Hospital has announced it has earned the Healthgrades 2019 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award™, marking its fourth consecutive year as a recipient. This achievement recognizes Englewood Hospital for exceptional clinical outcomes—among the top 10 percent of hospitals evaluated by Healthgrades for obstetrics and gynecology—while caring for women during labor and immediately after delivery of their newborn, as well as women undergoing gynecologic procedures.
“Achieving the Healthgrades Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award over the past four years reflects the dedication of our clinical staff to provide the highest quality, personalized care for women before and throughout the labor and delivery experience,” says Kathleen Kaminsky, MS, RN, NE-BC, senior vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer at Englewood Health.
The Family Birth Place at Englewood Health features award-winning maternity care services with the experience of a luxury hotel. Board-certified obstetricians and nurses work with expectant mothers to create individualized care plans.
“The Healthgrades 2019 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award recognizes hospitals that are dedicated to providing quality care for expectant mothers and women who will undergo gynecologic procedures,” said Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer at Healthgrades. “Consumers who do their homework by researching the quality of their local hospitals will make more informed healthcare decisions, and it could make a difference in terms of clinical outcomes.”
Healthgrades analyzed patient outcomes data for all patients (all-payer data) provided by 15 individual states between 2015 through 2017. During this time, if all hospitals in the analysis performed similarly to those that received the Healthgrades 2019 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award, complications could have potentially been avoided for 119,203 patients1.
Additionally, from 2015 through 2017, patients treated in hospitals receiving the Healthgrades Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award had, on average, a 33.4% 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.
In addition to earning the Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence award four years in a row, Englewood Hospital has received the Healthgrades Labor and Delivery Excellence Award and has been recognized as a 5-star recipient for Vaginal Delivery and C-Section Delivery.
 Statistics are based on Healthgrades’ analysis of all-payer data for years 2015 through 2017 and represent 3-year estimates for patients in 15 states for which all-payer data was made available.
