Healthgrades Study: Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County Receives 5-Star Rating for Stroke Care

Camden, NJ — Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County has been recognized by Healthgrades with a 5-star rating for stroke care — indicating that the hospital’s clinical outcomes are better than expected when treating stroke.

Healthgrades is the leading online resource that helps consumers search, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals. Its 2015 Report to the Nation evaluates performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 33 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.

“This distinction represents Lourdes Burlington’s dedication and commitment to quality stroke care and the best possible experience for stroke patients,” said Alexander J. Hatala, Lourdes Health System President and CEO. “It is also the result of the outstanding performance of our skilled team members who work faithfully each and every day on behalf of our patients.”

“The Healthgrades analysis shows that not all hospitals perform equally in all procedures, so it is important that consumers do their homework when selecting a hospital,” said Evan Marks, Chief Strategy Officer, Healthgrades. “Those hospitals that have achieved the Healthgrades distinction have demonstrated a commitment to exceptional clinical quality care.”

Healthgrades also honored Our Lady of Lourdes by naming the medical center among the Best 50 hospitals for Cardiac Surgery. The hospital also received Cardiac Care and General Surgery Excellence Awards.

According to Healthgrades, if all hospitals in the 2011-to-2013 period performed similarly to 5-star hospitals, an average 228,426 lives could potentially have been saved and 169,298 complications could potentially have been avoided.

“Americans are taking increasingly responsibility for their health,” said Hatala. “We are committed to providing safe, effective, compassionate care to all who trust us with their lives.”
