HealthGrades, the nation’s most trusted, independent source of physician information and hospital quality outcomes, has named Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC) the No. 1 hospital in Georgia for overall neuroscience services, including stroke care and neurosurgery. MUMC was also ranked among the top 10 percent nationally for stroke care and overall neuroscience services.

According to the report, patients in the Savannah Designated Market Area® are increasingly seeking such quality information online, with 99,515 area residents visiting HealthGrades.com in the past year. And for good reason: Choosing a hospital can be a life-or-death decision. A quality comparison of doctors and hospitals in the Savannah market can be found online.
“We go to great lengths to provide the best care to our patients. Being recognized as the No. 1 hospital in Georgia for overall neuroscience services is a tremendous honor and a tribute to our hard-working team,” said Maggie Gill, president and CEO of Memorial Health.

“Patients today have a wide array of options when it comes to choosing a healthcare provider,” said Kerry Hicks, HealthGrades’ chief executive officer. “At HealthGrades, we are proud to have led the way for empowering patient choice based on objective clinical outcomes and access to actionable quality measures. We commend Memorial University Medical Center for its superior quality and support of consumerism and transparency in the Savannah market area.”

HealthGrades report found that patients treated at five-star-rated hospitals experience a 73-percent lower risk of mortality and a 63-percent lower risk of complications. Memorial University Medical Center achieved a five-star rating for:

• Neurosurgery;
• Stroke care;
• Back and neck surgery, including spinal fusion;
• Overall spine surgery.

Key findings of the HealthGrades Healthcare Consumerism and Hospital Quality in America report include:

• If all Medicare patients from 2008 through 2010 had been treated at five-star hospitals, 240,040 lives could have potentially been saved;
• In an online survey, 80 percent said they are very or somewhat concerned about the quality of hospital care in their community;
• The Savannah market area rated three stars overall for stroke care quality, while Memorial University Medical Center is five-star-rated in stroke care.
