Tulsa, Okla. (June 22, 2015) -- St. John Medical Center has been named to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Common Care list for 2015-2016. St. John was rated as High Performing in heart failure procedures, one of five Common Care procedures examined. The ratings are an in-depth assessment of a hospital’s success with five specific procedures and conditions - COPD, heart bypass, heart failure, hip replacement and knee replacement.
St. John scored a mark of High for the number of Medicare inpatients treated for heart failure from 2010 to 2012, and Better Than Expected for patient survival 30 days after admission, adjusted for patient risk.
Of the 4,665 hospitals reviewed for Best Hospitals for Common Care, only 16 percent (744 hospitals) achieved a High Performing rating. SJMC was the only medical center in eastern Oklahoma to receive a High Performing rating.
“This honor is another example of St. John’s continuing efforts to deliver on quality and safety to our patients,” said Jeff Nowlin, St. John Medical Center president and chief operating officer. “It is a testament to our associates and physicians, who place service to others as their first priority.”
In July 2014, St. John Medical Center was the only eastern Oklahoma hospital to be named to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospital list.
