Mercy Ranks in the Top 2% Nationally in General Surgery

The CareChex® Medical Rating System, developed by The Delta Group, measures the quality of care provided by U.S. hospitals. The Delta Group awarded Mercy its National Medical Excellence Award in several categories - including general surgery where Mercy ranked in the top 2% nationally.

CareChex Medical Rating System is an innovative medical quality rating system designed to assist hospitals in improving the quality of inpatient care and promoting medical excellence to consumers, payers and employers. Relying on both public and proprietary measures of performance, CareChex compares the quality of hospital and physician care to national, state, and local standards using a variety of process, outcome, and patient satisfaction measures to assign a composite quality score and rating. Unlike other rating systems, CareChex provides a comprehensive, multidimensional analysis of medical quality.

This rating is compiled by measuring success in:

  • Core Process Measures
  • Patient Safety Indicators
  • Inpatient Quality Indicators
  • Mortality Rates
  • Complication Rates
  • Patient Satisfaction Measures
