Congratulations to our competitors
Congratulations to North Shore Medical Center, Newton-Wellesley Hospital, and South Shore Hospital for being included in the Fifth Annual Health Grades Hospital Quality and Clinical Excellence Study. This study identifies hospitals that have below-average mortality rates and complications across a wide range of procedures and diagnoses. Medicare administrative data covering 40 million discharges from 2003 through 2005 were used to make these calculations. Of 4,971 hospitals nationwide, only 266 received this designation.
