Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center Named America’s 100 Best for Coronary Intervention

November 6th, 2018

Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center is one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention according to a national study by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at almost 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions, as well as tracking outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 15 states and the District of Columbia.*

The achievement is part of findings released today in the Healthgrades 2019 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance differs dramatically between hospitals nationally, regionally and at the local level, and the impact that this variation has on health outcomes. From 2015-2017, patients treated at hospitals receiving the America's 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention Award have, on average a 46.0% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.*  Additionally, from 2015-2017, patients treated at hospitals which did not receive the America's 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention Award are, on average 1.85 times more likely to die than if they were treated at hospitals that did receive the award.*

“Hospitals that have achieved the Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention have proven their dedication to quality care and exceptional outcomes,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Healthgrades. “Consumers should consider hospital quality when navigating their care journeys, and this recognition distinguishes Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in the marketplace.”

“We take great pride in our cardiology program at Good Sam and it’s an honor to be recognized by Healthgrades as one of the top 100 hospitals in the country for coronary intervention,” said Good Samaritan’s Chief Medical Officer, Donald Teplitz, DO. “We’re committed to providing the best possible care to residents on the south shore of Suffolk County and this recognition confirms those efforts.”

Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center was also recognized for the following clinical achievements:

  • Five-Star Recipient for Coronary Bypass Surgery in 2019
  • Five-Star Recipient for Coronary Intervention Procedures for 3 Years in a Row (2017-2019)
