HealthGrades Awards for Baptist Medical Center in 2015

Baptist Medical Center is among the Best 100 Hospitals in the Nation for 

  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Joint Replacement
  • Prostate Surgeries

as recognized by Healthgrades, America's leading independent healthcare ratings organization. The Healthgrades designation for America’s 100 Best Hospitals represents the top 2% of hospitals nationwide.

Additionally, no hospital in Jackson has more 5-Star Ratings than Baptist Medical Center in 2015, as recognized by HealthGrades.

What the Healthgrades Ratings Mean

As America's leading independent healthcare ratings organization, the Healthgrades rating method offers a uniquely objective and comprehensive overview of hospital services. Healthgrades does all the following: 

  • evaluates the performance of approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide on risk-adjusted mortality and complications rates for 33 of the most common conditions treated and procedures.
  • independently measures hospitals based on data that hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital can opt in or out of the analysis, and no hospital pays to be measured. 
  • risk adjusts for patient demographic characteristics and clinical risk factors, thereby taking into account how sick patients are upon admission. 
  • bases its analysis solely on objective measures of clinical quality outcomes. Other organizations factor in subjective measures such as reputation or even technologies used at a hospital.

According to the Healthgrades 2015 Report to the Nation, if all hospitals in the United States as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5-stars as a group, on average 228,426 lives could potentially have been saved and 169,298 complications could potentially have been avoided for the period 2011-2013.
