St. Luke's Hospital Named One of America's 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery and Prostate Surgery

Chesterfield, Mo. , January 8, 2019
St. Luke's Hospital in Chesterfield has been named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery™ and one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Prostate Surgery™ by Healthgrades® for 2019. 

These designations recognize St. Luke’s for having superior outcomes in general and prostate surgeries including a lower risk of complications. The general surgery rating includes bowel obstruction, colorectal, esophageal/stomach, gallbladder removal and small intestine surgeries. 

“These achievements are the result of our entire healthcare team working together to provide each patient the best care possible,” said Christine M. Candio, FACHE, St. Luke’s president and chief executive officer. “This is how we live our mission to improve the quality of life for our patients and the community.” 

The Healthgrades honors are based on an evaluation of Medicare inpatient data from 2015 through 2017 for about 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide. Healthgrades assessed hospital performance related to more than 30 of the most common inpatient conditions and procedures. 

Healthgrades is an independent healthcare ratings organization. Hospitals cannot opt out of the Healthgrades analysis, and no hospital pays to be rated. Healthgrades risk-adjusts for patient demographic characteristics and clinical risk factors, thus taking into account how sick patients were before admission to the hospital.
