Healthgrades Names Guadalupe Regional Medical Center 5-Star Recipient for Vaginal Delivery Care

Guadalupe Regional Medical Center (GRMC) has been named a 5-star recipient for vaginal deliveries for the fourth consecutive year by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This 5-star rating indicates that GRMC’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when performing childbirth deliveries.

“Our Birthing Center is dedicated to providing new mothers and families with the highest quality and compassionate care throughout all phases of pregnancy; and we believe that starts with our highly skilled team,” says Daphne Blake, Chief Nursing Officer of Guadalupe Regional Medical Center. “In addition to our board-certified OBGYN’s, a pediatric hospitalist and neonatologist on staff, we are a Certified Texas Ten Step Hospital. We are honored that GRMC’s Birthing Center has been acknowledged on a national level for the fourth year a row for vaginal childbirth deliveries and we continue to make it our goal to provide a family-centered environment that delivers a safe and pleasant childbirth experience.”

“With more options than ever on where to receive care, consumers need to do their homework,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Hospitals that have received a 5-star rating have shown dedication and expertise, resulting in high-quality outcomes for patients.”

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 15 states and the District of Columbia for years 2014 through 2016. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not.
