Good Samaritan Hospital is one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, according to new research released by Healthgrades. The distinction puts Good Samaritan in the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures.
The hospital, part of the national HCA Healthcare system, also received several awards for specialty care, including America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Critical Care, and excellence awards for neurosciences and stroke care for 2023. Additionally, for the second year in a row, the hospital received the America's 100 Best Gastrointestinal Surgery Award and excellence awards in orthopedic surgery and surgical care.
“These awards stand as a testament to the unwavering commitment we have to provide high-quality, safe care to our patients and communities,” said Tomi Ryba, chief executive officer. “Thank you to our nurses, physicians and care teams for your hard work and dedication to our mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement to human life.”
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals to identify top-performing organizations. According to the company, patients treated at one of the best hospitals have a 28.7 percent lower risk of dying than if they were treated at a hospital that did not receive the award. If all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 250 Best, more than 160,000 lives could have been saved, Healthgrades said.
“More than ever, patients seek an organization that they trust will deliver top-notch care,” said Dr. Rich Briones, chief medical officer. “These recognitions demonstrate our continued commitment to build that trust through quality improvement across the many clinical services we provide throughout Silicon Valley and surrounding areas.”
According to Healthgrades, HCA Healthcare has more hospitals among America’s Best than any other organization in the country.
