HealthGrades Study Finds Patient Outcomes at Lenox Hill Hospital Among Nation’s Best For Cardiac Services and Coronary Interventional Procedures

October 15, 2007

According to the Tenth Annual HealthGrades Hospital Quality in America Study issued today, Lenox Hill Hospital ranks among the top ten percent in the nation for overall cardiac services and cardiology, and among the top five percent for coronary interventional procedures. The study, the largest of its kind, analyzed patient outcomes at virtually all of the nation's 5,000 hospitals over the years 2004, 2005 and 2006.

The study also found that Lenox Hill Hospital is:

  • A recipient of the 2008 HealthGrades Cardiac Care and Cardiac Surgery Excellence Awards, with five-star ratings for cardiology, coronary interventions, and treatment of heart attack and heart failure.
  • Five-star rated for treatment of pneumonia, stroke, sepsis and bowel obstruction.

Earlier this year, on June 25, Lenox Hill also was recognized with the 2007/08 HealthGrades Maternity Care Excellence AwardTM, ranking among the top ten percent in the nation and achieving five-star ratings.

Patients admitted to the nation’s top-performing hospitals have, on average, a 71 percent lower chance of dying than those treated at one-star hospitals across 18 procedures and conditions analyzed, according to the study. HealthGrades is the nation’s leading independent ratings company.

The Tenth Annual HealthGrades Hospital Quality in America Study identifies key trends in the quality of care provided by approximately 5,000 hospitals nationwide. HealthGrades researchers analyzed Medicare discharges from virtually every U.S. hospital between 2004 and 2006. Risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates were calculated and hospitals were assigned a 1-star (poor), 3-star (as expected), or 5-star

In 2007, Lenox Hill Hospital, a 652 – bed fully-accredited acute care hospital, celebrates its 150th year of continuous service as it builds upon its rich history of medical innovation and superior healthcare.

Nationally recognized for excellence in cardiovascular care, orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine, maternity care, bariatric surgery, management of stroke as well as ophthalmology and otolaryngology, Lenox Hill Hospital, located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is committed to the highest standards of care. A leader in medical education, cutting edge clinical research, and innovative community outreach, the Hospital treats more than 325,000 patients each year.

In 2006, the Hospital opened its new, expanded radiology center, with the only SPECT-CT in the northeastern United States, and a new 64-slice CT scanner, one of the most highly advanced computerized imaging technologies available.

This year, the Anne and Isidore Falk Center for Emergency Care opened at Lenox Hill Hospital. The new 15, 750 – square-foot facility is double the size of the previous space and features state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
