Why choose Our Surgical Hospital?
The NeuroMedical Center Surgical Hospital is a physician-owned hospital, and when physicians are directly involved in every aspect of the delivery of healthcare, patients distinctly benefit. The Federal government reported that structural measures of quality, such as staff specialization, clinical staff per patient, and complication rates, all suggested good performance on the part of physician-owned hospitals and demonstrated very high quality of care*.
Patients and their families value greatly the patient- centered care provided, including the quiet environment, private rooms, family accommodations, accessibility and attentiveness of nursing staff, specialized training of nursing staff, and specialized treatment of procedures offered by physician-owned hospitals. HHS Study, pages 48-53.
Mortality rates are significantly lower in physician hospitals than other community hospitals – for all medical procedures analyzed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), there was a measurable statistical significance. HHS study, page 42 (in reaching these conclusions, HHS adjusted acuity).
Complication rates at physician hospitals are measurably lower than at general hospitals. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, patients are three to five times more likely to experience complications at general hospitals than specialty hospitals. HHS Study, pages 44-45 (again, the results of the HHS Study were adjusted for acuity.)
Nurse-to-patient ratios are significantly better at physician hospitals than general hospitals. At physician-owned hospitals, nurse-to-patient ratios average 4 to 1; however, nurse-to-patient ratios at general hospitals are typically 8 to 1 or higher.
