Providence Medical Center,  a member of Prime Healthcare, recently announced that it ranks #3 in Kansas for Orthopedic Surgery, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This achievement, along with Providence’s other Healthgrades accomplishments reflect Providence’s commitment to delivering the best care possible and distinguishes Providence as one of Kansas’ leading hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery.

In addition, to the Orthopedics service line, others recognized at Providence reflect outstanding clinical outcomes in six other service areas, including Cardiac, Gastrointestinal, Critical Care, Surgical Care, and Patient Safety. Providence was also named among the top 5% in the nation for Patient Safety for the past six years in a row, according to Healthgrades

Among Providence’s other Healthgrades distinctions are Specialty Excellence Awards placing the hospital in the Top 10% of the nation for Coronary Intervention and Surgical Care. Providence also received 5 five-star ratings for services such as coronary intervention, pacemaker procedures, hip fracture treatment, gallbladder removal surgery and diabetic hospitalization.

“These accolades mirror our staff’s dedication to delivering the very best care,” says CEO Karen Orr, RN, MSN, MBA. “Our amazing skilled and devoted orthopedic surgeons and staff focus on high quality with each patient encounter leading to improved function and higher quality of life.”

“Healthgrades is proud to recognize Providence as among the top 3 in Kansas for Orthopedic Surgery, in addition to numerous other specialties including,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Hospitals with a #3 ranking in their state deliver consistently superior outcomes for the patients in their community. Consumers should feel confident knowing that they have access to top-ranked care for orthopedic care at Providence Medical Center.”

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on what matters most–patient outcomes–to determine the top-performing hospitals for specialty care in each of the 32 states assessed. Healthgrades’ 2024 analysis revealed that patients who seek care at a hospital with rankings in their condition or procedure have a better chance of a good outcome than if they were treated at a facility that is not among the top 3 in Kansas. This widening performance gap highlights the importance of selecting a top-rated program. In fact, from 2020 to 2022, patients treated at hospitals that received a state ranking for Orthopedic Surgery had, on average, a 44.4% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital OR dying than if they were treated at hospitals that were not state ranked for Orthopedic Surgery
