Hospital Quality Study Names Winthrop A Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence�

HealthGrades, the nation's most trusted source of healthcare provider information, has named Winthrop-University Hospital a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence� for the third year in a row. This prestigious distinction places Winthrop among the top five percent of hospitals nationwide for superior clinical performance. What's more, Winthrop is one of only seven recipients in New York State and the only recipient in Nassau County to be named a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence�.

"Winthrop-University Hospital can be proud of the contributions of its physicians, nurses and staff in achieving outstanding patient care," said Rick May, MD, HealthGrades Vice President of Clinical Quality Services and co-author of the study. "Nassau County is fortunate to have access to some of the highest quality hospital care in the nation."

In achieving this level of distinction, Winthrop was also named a recipient of 10 Specialty Excellence Awards in 2011 by HealthGrades including Vascular Surgery, Maternity Care and Women's Health (2010/2011) and Pulmonary Care. Winthrop was also ranked number one in NY State for General Surgery and GI Surgery (2010 and 2011) and ranked in the top five percent in the nation for Overall Cardiac Services, Cardiology Services and Angioplasty/Stent Procedures (2010 and 2011). Winthrop also achieved 23 five-star ratings across multiple major service areas.

"Winthrop is committed to a culture of quality and safety and is proud to be recognized with several notable honors by HealthGrades," said John F. Collins, Winthrop's President & CEO. "These impressive achievements are a testament to our commitment to clinical excellence and reflect the quality care that is delivered each day to Winthrop patients and their families by our outstanding team of physicians, nurses and clinical staff."
