PAMPA, Texas — Pampa Regional Medical Center, a member of Prime Healthcare Foundation, announced today it has achieved a five-star rating in the treatment of Sepsis, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor.
“Healthgrades congratulates PRMC for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades. “As health systems nationwide endeavor to elevate their quality of care, these elite facilities provide a roadmap for success. We commend PRMC for their dedication to excellence in patient care.”
Patient care begins with a commitment to patient safety, said Jon Gill, Chief Executive Officer, PRMC.
“It takes an intense focus on many different areas to achieve something like this – maintaining negative or positive air pressure in particular rooms and maintaining the equipment, constant cleaning and sanitizing, a commitment from hospital employees to maintain the highest individual standards, and a commitment from leadership and all employees to put patient safety first,” said Gill.
Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and complications. By focusing on what matters most–patient outcomes–Healthgrades ratings provide critical feedback for both patients and hospitals. By offering easy access to objective performance measures, Healthgrades gives consumers the information they need to find a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. And, by shining a light on strengths and weaknesses, Healthgrades ratings help direct hospitals to opportunities for clinical improvement. The 2024 hospital assessment evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.
