Friday, July 31st, 2009

For the third time in as many years, West Penn Hospital has been recognized as the best hospital in Pennsylvania for weight loss surgery by HealthGrades, a leading independent rating organization.

The West Penn Allegheny Health System also announced that its Bloomfield hospital received its fourth consecutive five-star rating and top 5 percent in the nation ranking for weight loss surgery. In the HealthGrades survey, West Penn was among 88 hospitals in the country that were identified as a *top
performer,* with mortality and complication rates and lengths of stay that were much lower than poorly-rated hospitals.

Bariatric surgery patients treated at five-star hospitals such as West Penn have an average 67 percent lower chance of experiencing serious complications compared to patients who undergo the surgery at poorly-rated hospitals, according to HealthGrades.
