10 Prospect Medical Hospitals Achieve 2021 Nationally Recognized Clinical Quality Awards from Healthgrades
October 27, 2020

Ten Prospect Medical hospitals received “5 stars” for excellent clinical outcomes in seven categories, according to the just-released Healthgrades’ 2021 national study, which evaluates hospital performance at almost 4,500 hospitals nationwide to determine clinical excellence in 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.

In total, the Prospect Medical Hospitals achieve 25 five-star quality awards, many for consecutive years.

Four of the hospitals—Los Angeles Community Hospitals at Los Angeles and Norwalk and Southern California Hospitals at Hollywood and Culver City—received additional clinical distinction in gastrointestinal (GI) and pulmonary care. Southern California Hospitals at Culver City and Hollywood are among America’s 100 Best Hospitals for GI Care, and all four California hospitals are among the top 5 percent in the nation for Overall GI Services.

“Clinical quality varies significantly between hospitals, so it’s important for consumers to use information about outcomes to assess where to receive care,” said Dr. Brad Bowman, Healthgrades’ chief medical officer. “This 5-star rating for these procedures and conditions showcases the expertise and commitment of these Prospect Medical hospitals to their patients.”

The Healthgrades report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals both nationally and regionally. This variation in care has a significant impact on health outcomes.

“We are proud to again be recognized for the care we provide our patients,” said Prospect’s Cathy Stevens, Corporate Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Quality, Patient Safety, and Clinical Excellence Officer.  “Our high-quality ratings demonstrate our commitment to service excellence and quality care.”

Nine of the Prospect Medical hospitals achieved 5-star ratings in specific procedures and conditions for the first time this year, including East Orange General Hospital in New Jersey, Los Angeles Community Hospitals, Southern California Hospitals, Roger Williams Medical Center in Rhode Island and Waterbury Hospital in Connecticut.
