Holland Hospital announces today that it is one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Surgical Care, America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery and America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading source of objective information on hospital performance.
“Being named among the best 50 hospitals in the nation for surgical care, as well as earning two additional specialty surgical awards, demonstrates the level of skill and unwavering dedication of Holland Hospital’s outstanding team of providers, nurses, clinical and support staff,” said Patti VanDort, Holland Hospital president. “This recognition is a true testament to our continuous commitment to providing high-quality care to the Lakeshore community.”
These awards place Holland Hospital among the top 5% of all hospitals in the nation for surgical care and joint replacement and the top 10% for orthopedic surgery based on Healthgrades’ thorough and objective methodology.
To identify top performers for the 2024 hospital analysis, Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide. Healthgrades identified the 100 Best hospitals for 16 of the most common specialty care areas. These distinctions reflect Holland Hospital’s outstanding clinical performance and distinguish it as one of the country’s leading hospitals.
Patients across the Lakeshore communities have proven benefits from having access to this high-quality care. Patients treated at hospitals among America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement have, on average, a 65.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication than if treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.*
Holland Hospital continues its track record of high-quality, compassionate care, receiving the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery Award™ for two years in a row (2023-2024), the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement Award™ for five years in a row (2020-2024) and the America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Surgical Care for three years in a row (2022-2024).
The hospital’s superior workforce is a major contributing factor to this ongoing success. Holland Hospital has earned West Michigan’s Best & Brightest Companies to Work For award for 22 years in a row—more than any other hospital. In addition, Holland Hospital is the only hospital in West Michigan to receive a 5-star rating every year since 2016 when the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began its rating system.
