Rochester Regional Health has achieved the “Healthgrades Five-Star Award for Vaginal Delivery” at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, United Memorial Medical Center, and Unity Hospital. Newark-Wayne and United Memorial also received the “Five-Star Award for C-Section Delivery” from Healthgrades, the leading online resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems. United Memorial has received a five-star rating for vaginal delivery for the last six years (2015-2020), and both Newark-Wayne and Unity have received it for two consecutive years (2019-2020). The five-star rating indicates the hospitals’ clinical outcomes for C-sections and vaginal delivery are statistically better than expected.
"The five-star ratings reflect our teams' commitment for providing the highest quality of care to all patients during the most profound moments of their lives," said Megan Aldrich, VP of Operations. “We appreciate the trust our community puts in us to take care of their families, and we are proud to relentlessly pursue ever more extraordinary care for our patients.”
Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data from 16 states for years 2016 through 2018. They found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not.
“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 women’s care to their patients.”
