Tuesday, August 11, 2020

 Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) is a 5-star recipient for C-Section Delivery as recognized by Healthgrades, the leading resource connecting consumers, physicians and health systems. This 5-star rating indicates that Cabell Huntington Hospital clinical outcomes for C-Section Delivery are statistically significantly better than expected.

“Our teams are dedicated to the safety and quality of those we serve,” said Kevin Fowler, president of CHH. “This honor only further demonstrates the compassion they provide every day.”

“Hospital quality should be top of mind for consumers when they evaluate and compare hospital performance,” said Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer, Healthgrades. “Women who select a hospital with a 5-star rating can feel confident in their choice knowing that these organizations are committed to providing exceptional care to their patients.”

Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 16 states for years 2016 through 2018. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not. For example, from 2016 through 2018, women having a C-Section Delivery in hospitals rated 5-stars have, on average, a 59% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals rated 1-star.
