Fredericksburg, VA (January 17, 2023) – Mary Washington Hospital ranks among the Top 5 in Virginia for Joint Replacement according to a new analysis released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. To determine this year’s State Ranking recipients, Healthgrades evaluated clinical performance for nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide focusing on 18 key specialties across a mix of chronic, urgent, and surgical specialty areas.
“This recognition celebrates the commitment to excellence demonstrated by the physicians and staff who care for our orthopedic patients every day,” said Mike McDermott, MD, President and CEO of Mary Washington Healthcare. “The dedication of our joint replacement clinical leadership is reflected in this recognition, ranking joint replacement at MWH as one of the elite programs in the state.”
Hospitals recognized as among the top 5 in their state by Healthgrades are providing patients with consistently better-than expected clinical outcomes. Patients treated at hospitals receiving a state ranking for Joint Replacement have, on average, a 62.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that were not ranked for Joint Replacement. *
“Being recognized as one of the top 5 in Virginia for Joint Replacement is a tremendous achievement that speaks to Mary Washington Hospital’s ongoing commitment to high-quality care. Hospitals receiving a #5 ranking in their state have a proven track record of delivering superior outcomes for the patients in their community,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science, Healthgrades. Bowman added, “For almost 25 years, our mission has been to provide consumers with clear and accessible information to make more informed healthcare decisions. Patients can feel confident knowing that they have access to top-ranked care for Joint Replacement at Mary Washington Hospital.”
