Milford Regional Receives High Ranking Again For Safety by Consumer Reports

Milford Regional Medical Center was ranked second out of 51 Massachusetts hospitals in a surgical safety rating issued recently by Consumer Reports. Last year, in the magazine’s first-ever rating of hospitals across the country, Consumer Reports ranked Milford Regional third statewide for patient safety. This year, the product and service review publication turned its safety focus on surgery.

The surgical safety ratings were based on analysis of Medicare claims data from 2009 through 2011 for patients undergoing 27 categories of common scheduled surgeries. Rankings were determined by rates of infections, readmissions, drug information provided to patients and adverse events. Out of 2,400 hospitals ranked nationwide, the highest score achieved was 74 out of a possible 100. Milford Regional scored 65 points.

“The high patient safety ranking Milford Regional received from Consumer Reports for the second consecutive year says everything about the extraordinary efforts taken by the team at Milford Regional to meet the highest standards of care in quality and safety,” says Edward J. Kelly, president of Milford Regional. ” I commend our physicians, employees and volunteers for their diligence in ensuring the health and well-being of our patients leading to this well-deserved recognition.”
