FOLSOM — Mercy Hospital of Folsom has been recognized as one of Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Critical Care in 2014.

Healthgrades, the leading online resource that helps consumers search, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals, evaluated nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 31 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions and identified the 100 best hospitals within each procedure.

The hospital is also ranked among the Top 5 percent in the nation for Critical Care in 2014 and the recipient of the Healthgrades Critical Care Excellence Award for two years in a row (2013-2014). Mercy Hospital of Folsom is a Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Sepsis for three years in a row (2012-2014) and a Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Respiratory Failure for three years in a row (2012 -2014).

“We are extremely honored at Mercy Folsom to be recognized by Healthgrades,” said Michael Ricks, president of Mercy Folsom. “I’d like to thank our physicians, nurses and staff for their daily efforts to provide excellent clinical care. These awards reflect their commitment to our patients.”

These achievements are part of findings released Oct. 22 in American Hospital Quality Outcomes 2014: Healthgrades Report to the Nation, which demonstrates how clinical performance differs dramatically between hospitals and the impact that this variation may have on health outcomes.

For example, from 2010-2012, if all hospitals as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving five stars as a group, on average 234,252 lives could potentially have been saved and 157,418 complications could potentially have been avoided. A five-star rating indicates that a hospital’s clinical outcomes are better than expected when treating the condition or conducting the procedure being evaluated.

Other notable Healthgrades recognitions at Mercy Hospital of Folsom include:

• Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Stroke for two years in a row (2013-2014)

• Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Heart Failure in 2014

• Five-Star Recipient for Total Knee Replacement for four years in a row (2011- 2014)

•  Five-Star Recipient for Colorectal Surgeries in 2014

• Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Bowel Obstruction in 2014

Mercy Hospital of Folsom is a 106-bed acute care hospital located at 1650 Creekside Drive in Folsom.
