Mercy Medical Center secures top rank from Healthgrades for surgical care in Maryland

Mercy Medical Center ranks #1 in Maryland for Surgical Care and among the Top 5 hospitals in the state for both Joint Replacement and Orthopedic Surgery, Dr. David N. Maine, President and CEO of Mercy Health Services, has announced.

The rankings are based on a new analysis released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients, wherein nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide were evaluated for clinical performance, focusing on 18 key specialties across a mix of chronic, urgent, and surgical specialty areas.

This recognition by Healthgrades is indicative of Mercy's commitment to the mission of the Sisters of Mercy -- to provide quality care in a compassionate setting for our patients, no matter their economic or social condition. We especially wish to recognize the efforts of Mercy's entire surgical team, including the providers and staff in Orthopedics & Joint Replacement at Mercy, and their dedication to fulfilling the Mercy mission, every day."

Patients treated at hospitals receiving a state ranking for Surgical Care have, on average, a 32.3% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that were not state ranked for Surgical Care.* 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 state ranked for Joint Replacement.*
