Huntington Hospital Recognized with Healthgrades 5-Star Rating for Prostate Removal Surgery

July 18, 2016

In June, as part of Men’s Health Month, Huntington Hospitalwas recognized by Heathgrades for receiving a 5-star rating for prostate removal surgery. Huntington Hospital is one of only six hospitals in Los Angeles County to receive this 5-star rating, out of 40 eligible hospitals.

“It is important to bring awareness to men's health issues, such as prostate care," said Ramin Khalili, MD, urologist, Huntington Hospital. "We are proud to be recognized by Healthgrades with the 5-star rating for prostate removal surgery. This achievement is a testament to the compassionate and technically superb care provided by our team.”

The achievement is part of findings released in the Healthgrades 2016 Report to the Nation. The report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals both nationally and regionally. This variation in care has a significant impact on health outcomes. In the report, Healthgrades compared hospitals with statistically better than expected performance (5-stars), as a group to those statistically worse than expected performance (1-star), as a group and found from 2012-2014, patients having prostate removal surgery in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average, 81% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals with 1-star.
