Date:7/14/2009

CHICAGO, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Resurrection Medical Center was presented with the 2009/2010 Women's Health Excellence Award(TM) from HealthGrades, the nation's leading independent healthcare ratings organization, based on a newly released study of patient outcomes.

Hospitals that receive this award rank among the top 5% of all hospitals nationwide when it comes to providing care to women in three areas: Women's Medicine (heart attack, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and stroke); Women's Cardiovascular Procedures (coronary bypass surgery, peripheral vascular bypass, coronary interventional procedures, resection/replacement of abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid surgery, and valve replacement); and Women's Bone & Joint Health (total knee and total hip replacement surgeries, spinal surgeries, and hip fracture repair).

"We are continually looking for ways to strengthen our services and optimize our patient outcomes," says Sister Donna Marie Wolowicki, C.R., CEO. "Our achievement in Women's Health is a clear indication that our quality improvement initiatives have been extremely successful. Although this award is for Women's Health Excellence, we are committed to providing every patient who enters our doors with excellent, compassionate and respectful care."

The study, which analyzes patient outcomes for the inhospital treatment of 16 procedures/diagnoses concerning women's health and maternity care, finds that top-performing hospitals improved their mortality and morbidity 33% more than poorly performing hospitals in the period studied, 2005 through 2007.
