Providence Los Angeles Area medical centers awarded for women’s health services

July 28, 2017

A total of 13,445 babies were delivered last year at the six medical Providence centers in Los Angeles, hospitals that each earned 5-star national recognition for high quality labor and delivery care.

Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals, announced today 41 awards for obstetrics, gynecology and labor and delivery for the six hospitals: Providence Holy Cross, Providence Saint Joseph and Providence Tarzana medical centers in the San Fernando Valley; Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica; and Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Centers in San Pedro and Torrance.

“Thousands of new parents put their trust in us each year because we deliver the quality they count on,” said Michael Bernstein, M.D., chief medical officer, Providence St. Joseph Health, Los Angeles Region. “Each birth involves a team of experts – and credit goes to those obstetricians, laborists who care for our mothers-to-be 24/7, nurses, lactation experts, respiratory therapists and other specialists who are available when necessary.”

The 5-star rating indicates hospitals’ clinical outcomes are significantly better than expected statistically when treating a condition or performing the procedure being evaluated.

“Consumers place high-quality outcomes at the top of their wish lists when selecting a hospital, so health systems that have achieved this particular distinction stand out among their peers,” said Brad Bowman, M.D., chief medical officer, Healthgrades. “Especially in an environment where consumers have more choices than ever before about where to receive care, a hospital’s commitment to achieving high-quality outcomes for their patients is more important than ever.”

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 17 states from 2013 through 2015. Healthgrades found there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those who have received five stars and those that have not. For example:
