Wentworth-Douglass Hospital remains among the best hospitals in the nation for patient experience and has been named a five-star recipient in four separate specialty categories, according to rankings released recently by Healthgrades, a healthcare data company.
For the 9th consecutive year, Wentworth-Douglass has been named the recipient of the Outstanding Patient Experience Award and has been ranked among the top 5% in the nation in that category.
In addition, Healthgrades named Wentworth-Douglass a five-star recipient for treatment of heart failure for the second consecutive year, and for pneumonia for the 9th year in-a-row. The hospital also garnered five-star honors for upper gastrointestinal surgeries and for treatment of sepsis.
“These awards are an incredible organizational achievement that serve as a reflection of our unwavering commitment to the health and wellness of our Seacoast community,” said Jeff Hughes, President and CEO of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.
“It’s also a reflection, and reaffirmation, of the amazing work of our incredible staff. It highlights their continued dedication to quality care, innovation, and patient-centered care,” he added.
For the annual analysis, Healthgrades independently analyzed each short-term acute care hospital in the country – roughly 4,500. The company used three years of Medicare patient data (2019-2021) and a risk-adjusted statistical model that considered patient acuity. The star ratings are determined by actual, not predicted, performance.
Healthgrades’ ratings are publicly available on their website: https://www.healthgrades.com/.
