HealthGrades Names Fremont-Rideout Health Group Among Best In U.S. in Gynecological Surgery and Maternity Care

A report released by HealthGrades, the nation's most trusted independent source of physician information and hospital quality outcomes, named Rideout Health Group among the top 10% in the United State for gynecological surgery, giving its full Five-Star rating. The HealthGrades report found that women who undergo gynecological surgery at Five-Star rated hospitals experience 35% fewer complications. HealthGrades had previously designated Fremont-Rideout among the top 10% of healthcare providers in the nation for maternity care in 2010/2011.

Gynecological surgeries offered at Rideout Memorial Hospital, using both traditional and minimally-invasive techniques depending on the case, include hysterectomies, endometrial ablation, pelvic floor repair and removal of ovarian cysts.

Rideout's well-regarded Women and Infant Department, currently located at Fremont Medical Center, will soon be getting a two-floor facility within the new wing of Rideout Memorial Hospital. Women's health will continue to be a key priority for the non-profit community healthcare organization.

"Women today have a wide array options when it comes to reproductive health and choosing a health care provider who aligns with their personal preferences," said Divya Cantor, MD, MBA and HealthGrades Senior Physician Consultant. "Female patients can optimize their chances for receiving the highest possible quality of care by researching and comparing the clinical outcomes of hospitals and doctors in their area."

Key findings of the HealthGrades 2011 Obstetrics & Gynecology in American Hospitals report include:

  • In the 19 states studied, 9% percent of women undergoing gynecologic surgery experienced an in-hospital complication. If all hospitals performed at the level of the best hospitals, 35% of these complications (30,675) could have been potential prevented.
  • While hysterectomies are the most common gynecological procedure performed in hospitals, comprising 79% of all the inpatient gynecologic surgeries, the number has decreased substantially. Since 2002, the number has declined 31%.

"We're gratified by this latest accolade from HealthGrades," said Terri Hamilton, CEO, FRHG. "This recognition reaffirms our mission to provide superior healthcare to everyone in our region, regardless of their ability to pay."
