Southern California Hospitals at Hollywood and Culver City are among the Top 5% in the Nation for Overall Pulmonary Services for the third year in a row (2020-2022) and a recipient of the Pulmonary Care Excellence Award, according to new analysis by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.

Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 31 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.* Healthgrades then recognizes hospitals with superior performance in specific specialty lines and specialty focus areas.

“We want to provide information to make finding a healthcare specialist an easier experience for consumers. Patients can feel confident knowing that hospitals that are recognized for their performance in [specialty care] provide high-quality care and superior outcomes,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Healthgrades chief medical officer and head of data science.

“This recognition of our clinical quality means the patients our West Los Angeles patients receive nationally recognized care close to home,” said Administrator Luis Angel, Southern California Hospital at Hollywood.  “Our high-quality ratings demonstrate our commitment to service excellence and quality care.”

*Statistics are based on Healthgrades analysis of MedPAR data for years 2018 through 2020 and represent three-year estimates for Medicare patients only. For appendectomy and bariatric surgery, Healthgrades used inpatient data from 16 states that provide all-payer data for years 2017 through 2019. Due to the highly variable impact of the pandemic on hospital outcomes, Healthgrades made the decision to exclude cases with a COVID-19 diagnosis from the 2020 data in order to preserve the statistical integrity of our models and fairly evaluate clinical outcomes at all hospitals.
