US News & World Reports Hospital Surveys: Martinsville Memorial Hospital

My last blog shared the U.S. News 2017 – 2018 Hospital Survey results for Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and Lewis-Gale Medical Center, both in the Roanoke Valley.  Today, I will share the results of the survey for Memorial Hospital (MMH) in Martinsville, Virginia.

Memorial Hospital is a general medical and surgical hospital with 150 beds. Survey data for the latest year available shows that 41,455 patients visited the hospital’s emergency room. The hospital had a total of 5,440 admissions. Its physicians performed 1,054 inpatient and 5,056 outpatient surgeries.

 I will summarize MMH’s ratings in the following high volume medical specialties:

1.  Nephrology (disease and treatment of the kidneys)- rated 36 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing.

2.  Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Surgery – rated 45 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing.

3.  Pulmonary – rated 45 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing.

4.  Diabetes and Endocrinology – rated 37 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing. 

MMH did not have one medical specialty or department recognized as high performing.  Read the report here.

My Take:  These are not impressive ratings.
