St. Anthony Community Hospital and two other member hospitals of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth) participate in Healthgrades, a leading resource for comparative analysis and information about physicians and health systems.

These three hospitals, Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick and Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis, have each earned five-star ratings for multiple service lines from Healthgrades.

Five-star rating for vaginal and C-cection deliveries

The Birthing Centers of St. Anthony Community Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital were awarded a five-star rating for vaginal deliveries and St. Anthony Community Hospital also earned five-stars for C-section deliveries.

Good Samaritan Hospital was named among the top five percent of hospitals in the nation who participate in the Healthgrades program, for obstetrics and gynecology for the second consecutive year.

Ratings and methodology

A five-star rating indicates that the hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically better than the national average when performing the surgeries or procedures being assessed (according to Partners.Healthgrades.com/Quality/Quality-Methodology).

This includes how well a hospital safeguards patients from potential complications and the service line’s ability to care for complex conditions.

From 2017-2020, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare-patient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute-care hospitals nationwide, assessing hospital performance relative to 34 common conditions and procedures.
