HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe among top 5% in the nation for patient safety

Conroe, TX – HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe announced today that it has been recognized as a 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Award™ recipient by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This distinction places HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe among the Top 5% for Patient Safety of all short-term acute care hospitals as evaluated by Healthgrades. This achievement reflects the hospital’s dedication to providing a safe, high-quality care experience for all patients.

“We are honored to be recognized by Healthgrades with the 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Award. Thank you to our colleagues and physicians who keep patient safety top of mind each day while providing comprehensive care to our patients,” said Matt Davis, CEO, HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe.

To determine the nation’s premier hospitals for patient safety, Healthgrades evaluated risk-adjusted complication and mortality rates for approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide. Healthgrades’ analysis revealed marked declines in patient safety, particularly among the nation’s lowest-performing hospitals. As a result, patients who seek care at hospitals receiving the 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Award have a significantly lower risk of experiencing one of the four leading patient safety indicators than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals:

  • In-hospital fall resulting in fracture (approximately 52% less likely)*
  • Collapsed lung due to a procedure or surgery in or around the chest (approximately 56% less likely)*
  • Pressure sores or bed sores acquired in the hospital (approximately 67% less likely)*
  • Catheter-related bloodstream infections acquired in the hospital (approximately 71% less likely)*

“Through our 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Awards, we seek to recognize hospitals that excel in providing top-quality care for their patients while preventing serious injuries during hospital stays,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and head of Data Science, Healthgrades. “We are proud to name HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe as a 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Award recipient and look forward to their continued efforts to make patient safety a top priority.”
