Saint Agnes Medical Center has earned praise from Healthgrades and Blue Shield and Blue Cross companies for successful outcomes of common gynecologic procedures, and for the quality of care provided to women during and after childbirth.
Healthgrades, a national organization that evaluates thousands of hospitals nationwide, named Saint Agnes among the top 10 percent of hospitals evaluated for labor and delivery, obstetrics and gynecology, and gynecologic surgery. The medical center has also received Healthgrades 5-Star awards for vaginal delivery, C-Section delivery, gynecologic surgery, hysterectomy and GYN surgery.
In addition, Saint Agnes has been named a Blue Distinction Center+ for maternity care. Hospitals with this designation by Blue Cross and Blue Shield are shown to deliver improved safety and better health outcomes.
“We’re honored to be the recipient of these elite designations that bring to light the compassionate, quality care we deliver,” Nancy Hollingsworth, RN and president and CEO of Saint Agnes Medical Center said. “In addition to beautiful private rooms for new moms, a 30-plus-year partnership [with] Valley Children’s Healthcare, and highly skilled physicians and health care professionals, Valley women now have even more reason to choose Saint Agnes.”
