In the May 2014 issue, Consumer Reports named two Presence Health hospitals as the top consumer safe hospitals in Chicago. Presence Resurrection Medical Center earned the highest city ranking of 56 and Presence Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center earned the second highest with 55. The national average is 51.
Consumer Reports studied more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals and looked at five categories in rating patient safety: mortality, re-admissions, overuse of CT scans, hospital-acquired infections and communication.
"Patient safety is paramount and these ratings reflect the exceptional teamwork between all hospital staff and physicians in caring for patients. We are pleased to be named the top safest hospitals in the city of Chicago," said John Baird, president and CEO, Presence Resurrection Medical Center and Presence Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center.
