NCH Named as one of America’s Top 100 Hospitals by Healthgrades

Named one of America's Top 100 Hospitals!

NCH Named as one of America’s Top 100 Hospitals by Healthgrades - ranking in the top 2% of hospitals nationwide.

NAPLES, FL, USA, February 8, 2022 / -- The NCH Healthcare System, comprised of both NCH Baker Hospital and NCH North Naples Hospital, has received the Healthgrades 2022 America’s 100 Best Hospitals Award™. This notable distinction places NCH in a small, elite group of hospitals who are in the top two percent of nearly 4,500 hospitals assessed nationwide for superior clinical care and patient outcomes for the treatment of the most common conditions and procedures as measured by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems. Or, said another way, NCH offers better clinical excellence and outcomes than 98% of all other hospitals nationwide who were part of Healthgrades analysis. NCH is one out of only six other healthcare facilities in the state of Florida to be recognized with this distinction.

This is no easy feat for the small percentage who are named within this coveted category. Recipients must have maintained exceptional quality standards in overall clinical excellence for a minimum of five years-in-a-row to even be considered for this prestigious honor.

From 2018-2020, patients treated in hospitals achieving the Healthgrades top 100 hospitals recognition on average had a 25.4 percent lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive this award. In fact, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to NCH 162,830 lives could potentially have been saved from 2018-2020.*

“NCH Healthcare System has always prided itself on delivering quality healthcare to our community,” said Paul Hiltz, President & CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. “Since my arrival as CEO two years ago our entire team has been laser-focused on reaching the benchmark of being named a top 100 healthcare system. Our commitment to providing an exceptional patient experience each and every time has been instrumental in helping us finally reach this remarkable distinction with Healthgrades.”

“We are proud to recognize NCH as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2022,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As an America’s 100 Best hospital, NCH’s clinical performance and patient outcomes outpaced nearly all other hospitals in the country. We believe these distinguished hospitals are leading the industry and setting the standard for providing safe and quality care.”
