In addition to our recognition for cardiac surgery, we received a five-star rating in clinical outcomes for coronary bypass surgery, pacemaker procedures and total knee replacement for the past three years. The great majority of conditions and procedures received 3 stars with a handful of areas getting just 1 star (obviously a great deal of focus will begin if it hasn't already in these areas). We also received an Excellence Award for patient safety.
We are in very good company with the other hospitals in the Trivergent Health Alliance, Meritus and Frederick, in both the 5-star ratings and excellence awards.
With all of the recent advertising in Cumberland for cardiac surgery, orthopedics and cancer coming out of Morgantown, WV, I wonder how they fared with the 5-star ratings and excellence awards in each of those areas?
We have a great deal to be proud of and will be showcasing these awards on campus and in the community. Congratulations to all at WMHS on a job very well done!
