US News & World Reports Hospital Surveys: Danville Regional Medical Center

I have already shared with our readers the U.S. News 2017 – 2108 Hospital Survey ratings for Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, Lewis-Gale Medical Center, and Memorial Hospital of Martinsville.  Today, I will share the results of the survey for Danville Regional Medical Center in Danville, Virginia.

Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) is a general medical and surgical hospital with 250 beds. Survey data for the latest year available shows that 25,434 patients visited the hospital’s emergency room. The hospital had a total of 8,748 admissions. Its physicians performed 1,836 inpatient and 3,564 outpatient surgeries.

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

1.  Nephrology (disease and treatment of the kidneys)- rated 16 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing.

2.  Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Surgery – rated 25 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing.

3.  Urology – rated 15 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing.

4.  Diabetes and Endocrinology – rated 29 out of 100, unranked in the United States, and not high performing. 

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

My Take: With all of the caveats previously expressed, Danville Regional Hospital may take the award for the worst survey scores in Western Virginia.
