HCA Florida Ocala Hospital receives 37 Healthgrades Quality Awards

HCA Florida Healthcare announced last week that its hospitals were recognized with over 650 quality awards from Healthgrades, including 37 awards that were received by HCA Florida Ocala Hospital.

Healthgrades, a leading marketplace that connects doctors and patients, recognizes high-performing hospitals for their commitment to delivering excellence in patient care and outcomes through three distinct programs, including the five-star recipient rating, America’s Best Specialty Care Awards, and the Specialty Excellence Award.

To identify the top-performing hospitals for specialty care as well as certain procedures and conditions, Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for over 30 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country.

According to HCA Florida Healthcare, this year’s analysis revealed significant variation in patient outcomes between hospitals who received a Healthgrades distinction and those that did not receive a distinction.

Over 30 hospitals in the HCA Florida Healthcare family were recognized last week for their ongoing commitment to providing high-quality patient care and delivering consistently exceptional outcomes. These hospitals received a total of 673 Healthgrades awards, which is 58 more awards than HCA Florida Healthcare received the previous year.
