Medical Excellence in Stroke Care Outcomes

Memorial Tops in Louisiana for Medical Excellence in Stroke Care Outcomes

Lake Charles Memorial has been recognized as the top hospital in Louisiana for Medical Excellence in stroke care outcomes by CareChex®. This 2020 award is based on a comprehensive quality scoring system that CareChex uses to compare inpatient quality performance across general, acute and non-federal U.S. hospitals.“This recognition is a testament to our team’s hard work and their dedication to providing the quality medical care for our stroke patients,” says Lake Charles Memorial Stroke Coordinator Paige Weaver. “Coordinated care and improving outcomes for stroke patients is our goal.”

CareChex® is an innovative medical quality rating system designed to assist hospitals and health systems in improving the quality of inpatient care and promoting medical excellence to consumers, payers and employers. The analysis by CareChex looks at patient safety, inpatient quality and measures of mortality, complications and readmission rates. Unlike other publicly available quality rankings, CareChex provides a composite evaluation of all components of medical quality including process of care, outcomes of care, and patient experiences.
