11.21.2019

CHICO, Calif., Nov. 21, 2019 — Healthgrades surprised more than 100 department leaders, physicians and staff at Enloe Medical Center on Tuesday with the presentation of multiple quality awards.

The recognition is based on inpatient data from Medicare for more than 4,500 hospitals across the country.

Enloe Medical Center was recognized for the following clinical achievements:

  • America’s 100 Best for Gastrointestinal Care
  • America’s 100 Best for General Surgery
  • Outstanding Patient Experience, Top 15% in the Nation 4 Years in a Row (2016-2019)
  • Named Among the Top 5% in the Nation for Cranial Neurosurgery in 2020
  • Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Stroke in 2020
  • Five-Star Recipient for Total Hip Replacement for 2 Years in a Row (2019-2020)
  • Five-Star Recipient for Hip Fracture Treatment for 2 Years in a Row (2019-2020)
  • Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Sepsis for 2 Years in a Row (2019-2020)
  • Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Respiratory Failure for 2 Years in a Row (2019-2020)

“It was a privilege to recognize Enloe for its exceptional quality outcomes and patient experience,” said Alicia Dreyer, director of Quality Outcomes at Healthgrades. “The sense of community and the culture of patient-centered care becomes evident as soon as you walk through the doors. Through times of challenging changes and uncertainty this last year, Enloe has provided a steadfast presence of support and care.”

These achievements are part of findings released in the Healthgrades 2020 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates the importance of hospital quality to both hospital leaders and consumers. From 2016-2018, patients treated at hospitals receiving the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery Award have, on average, a 29 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication or dying while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.

“We are honored to be recognized by Healthgrades,” said Mike Wiltermood, Enloe Medical Center’s president and CEO. “These awards reflect the quality care our compassionate caregivers provide every day. I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their contributions, and I would like to express our sincere appreciation to our community for allowing us to care for them and their families.”
