Date:3/6/2008

CHICAGO, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Neurologic & Orthopedic Hospital of Chicago (NOHC) is among the top five percent in the country for spine surgery according to the Tenth Annual HealthGrades Hospital Quality in America study. The HealthGrades Research analyzed patient outcomes at all of the nation's hospitals over the past three years. The study also concluded that NOHC is:

-- Ranked No. 1 in the state of Illinois

-- A recipient of the HealthGrades Spine Surgery Excellence Award

-- The only hospital in Illinois to receive spine surgery excellence

award

-- Five-star rated for spine surgery

-- Five-star rated for back and neck surgery two years in a row

-- Five-star rated for spinal fusion

The HealthGrades Study examines nearly 5,000 hospitals nationwide and identifies key trends in their quality of care. HealthGrades researchers analyzed Medicare discharges from virtually every U.S. hospital between 2004 and 2006. They compared actual performance to predicted performance for patient outcomes during that time period.

"We are honored with this award of excellence in spine surgery and are delighted to be recognized for the unprecedented patient care and customer service provided by our medical staff," says Dr. Leonard Cerullo, Medical Director of NOHC.

ABOUT THE NEUROLOGIC & ORTHOPEDIC HOSPITAL OF CHICAGO

The Neurologic & Orthopedic Hospital of Chicago is the country's only freestanding acute care facility dedicated exclusively to neuroscience and orthopedic services. During 2007, more than 2,000 neurosurgical and orthopedic surgeries were performed at NOHC.

The brain and spinal fusion surgeries at NOHC have been acknowledged by many of Chicago's well-respected insurance companies as having the fewest complications. A similar level of excellence is seen on the orthopedics side of the hospital. The total joint program at NOHC boasts zero complications, perhaps the lowest complication rate of any hospital in the nation.
