Healthgrades Names PPMC Among the Top 5 Percent of U.S. Hospitals

Last month, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center was among 260 hospitals across the nation that received the 2014 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence from Healthgrades.

The annual award recognizes facilities performing in the top 5 percent based on clinical outcomes for dozens of common procedures and conditions. To be eligible for consideration, hospitals must have sufficient data to assess mortality and complication rates for at least 21 of the 30 conditions and procedures included in the Healthgrades methodology. Altogether, nearly 4,500 hospitals were evaluated and 1,407 were deemed eligible for the award based on data availability.
