Healthgrades Hospital Quality Report Names Mother Frances Hospital

-Tyler a Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence™

Recipient



Tyler, TX – Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler today announced that it

has once again received the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical

Excellence™ in 2013. The distinction ranks Mother Frances Hospital -

Tyler among the top five percent of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide

for its clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, a leading

provider of comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler is one out of only 10 Hospitals in Texas

to receive the Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence Award in

2013.



From 2009 through 2011, 262 hospitals showed superior performance in

caring for patients in the Medicare population, as measured by objective

clinical outcomes (risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital

complications) across at least 19 of 27 of the most common conditions

and procedures.  Nationally, if all hospitals performed at this level

from 2009 through 2011 a total of 164,414 lives could have potentially

been saved.



“Mother Frances Hospital has focused on quality care since we opened

in 1937. Our quality journey has led us to five straight years of care

that ranks us as having some of the best healthcare in the nation. The

recognition from Healthgrades is an honor and it reflects the dedication

to everyone who works here and our commitment to our patients,” said

Laura Owen, FACHE, CEO, Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler.



“Healthgrades helps consumers become more aware that hospital quality

matters and differs significantly from one hospital to another, even in

their own neighborhood,” said Evan Marks, EVP Informatics and

Strategy. “Since selecting a physician and hospital strongly impacts

patients’ odds of experiencing complications or emerging from their

procedure alive and well, patients should familiarize themselves with

the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence recipients

since these hospitals stand out above the rest for their overall

clinical performance across a broad spectrum of care.”
