March 17, 2017

Orange Regional Medical Center recently celebrated a host of Cardiology accolades including a Becker’s Hospital Review ranking which placed Orange Regional 35th out of 2,371 hospitals nationwide for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) risk adjusted mortalities.

Orange Regional also received 2017 national honors from Healthgrades recognizing Orange Regional as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals in the country for Coronary Intervention.

In addition, the Hospital was recognized with the Healthgrades 2017 Coronary Intervention Excellence Award, received five-star recognition for Coronary Intervention Procedures and was named among the top 5% for Coronary Intervention Procedures.

Healthgrades’ analysis found that from 2013 to 2015, patients treated at hospitals receiving the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention Award have, on average:

  • 45% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.
  • Additionally, patients treated at hospitals which did not receive the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention Award were almost 2 times more likely to die than if they were treated at hospitals that did receive the award.

Healthgrades also determined in an analysis from 2013-2015 that patients treated at hospitals receiving the Coronary Intervention Specialty Excellence Award have, on average:

  • 43% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.
