Overland Park, KS — HCA Midwest Health — Kansas City’s largest healthcare provider with seven hospitals and dozens of outpatient centers, clinics, physician practices, surgery centers and an array of other facilities and services to meet area residents’ healthcare needs across the region — today announced that Overland Park Regional Medical Center has been recognized with two 2023 Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Top 100 Hospital Awards™ from Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients.
Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Awards recognize the top 10% of hospitals across the country in 17 specialty care areas. Among those in the top 10%, the very best hospitals are named among the top 100 in the country. Overland Park Regional Medical Center received the following Healthgrades awards:
- One of Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care™ in 2023
- One of Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention™ in 2023
This is not the first time that Overland Park Regional Medical Center has been recognized for excellence in cardiovascular care. Fortune and IBM Watson Health named it as one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in December 2021.
“HCA Midwest Health is honored to have Overland Park Regional Medical Center recognized as a top 100 hospital in the country for cardiac care and for coronary intervention,” says HCA Midwest Health President Keith Zimmerman. “These awards speak to our organization’s commitment to high-quality specialty care and our dedication to strong physician partnerships to achieve results that matter to consumers. We are proud our investments in our caregivers, processes, technology and training make a difference in healthcare, and we will continue making clinical quality a priority and delivering outstanding care.”
“This national recognition of Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s best-in-class quality and clinical excellence
in cardiology is an honor,” says Overland Park Regional Medical Center CEO Matt Sogard, FACHE. “It is a testament
to the extraordinary contributions, focus and dedication of our exceptional team of clinicians and staff who are deeply committed to delivering high-quality and compassionate care to patients in the communities we serve, here in Overland Park and beyond.”
“Where you go for your healthcare is an important decision, and these quality ratings for cardiology care from a leading national organization such as Healthgrades reaffirms that,” says Chief Medical Officer, Cardiovascular Services at HCA Midwest Health Steve Marso, MD. “Being ranked as one of America’s top 100 hospitals in the country for cardiac care and for coronary intervention demonstrates the commitment of Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s physicians and caregivers to providing our community with the best heart care possible, close to home.”
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals for specialty care. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation in patient outcomes between hospitals with a 2023 Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Award and hospitals that did not receive the award.
“We commend Overland Park Regional Medical Center for its ongoing commitment to providing high-quality care to patients being treated for/undergoing the recognized service lines,” says Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Consumers can feel confident that recipients of the 2023 Excellence Award have demonstrated their ability to deliver consistently exceptional outcomes.”
In addition to Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s accolades, several HCA Midwest Health facilities earned quality awards, including the only two hospitals in the Kansas City region to receive Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Surgical Care™ Awards. Other HCA Midwest Health hospitals were also recognized for clinical excellence in cardiac, stroke care, gastrointestinal surgery, joint replacement, orthopedic surgery, coronary intervention, spine surgery, pulmonary care, vascular surgery, and critical care service lines.
