Healthgrades recently released its 2021 America’s Best Hospitals designation, and AdventHealth Wesley Chapel and AdventHealth Zephyrhills were among the honorees. In all, nine AdventHealth hospitals were recognized.
The America’s Best Hospitals award recognizes superior performance in 32 of the most common conditions and procedures. Only 250 hospitals nationwide received the recognition, and AdventHealth Wesley Chapel and AdventHealth Zephyrhills were the only hospitals in the Tampa Bay area to be honored.
"Patient safety and high quality of care continues to be our priority, and we are honored to receive this recognition,” said Erik Wangsness, president and CEO for AdventHealth Wesley Chapel. “This award is a testament to the hard work of our physicians and team members who are committed to keeping our patients safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and each and every day.”
In naming the honorees, Healthgrades evaluated nearly 4,500 hospitals across conditions and procedures like heart attacks, stroke, heart failure, and sepsis. Facilities earning the America’s Best Hospitals distinction sit among the top five percent of those assessed by Healthgrades.
“Clinical excellence is at the core of our care, and this distinction highlights our ongoing commitment to providing our expertise to every patient, every time,” said Amanda Maggard, president and CEO for AdventHealth Zephyrhills and AdventHealth Dade City. “This prestigious honor celebrates the dedication of our teams who continue to go above and beyond to ensure our communities are receiving the best care possible and experiencing better outcomes.”
