Adventist Health Receives 5-Stars for Urogynecologic Care

Awards & Recognition

HANFORD – Excellent care in women’s pelvic health and incontinence problems is helping Adventist Health stand out from the rest!

Adventist Health Hanford was named a 5-star recipient for Urogynecologic Care by Healthgrades, the leading online source for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. The 5-star rating indicates that the medical center’s clinic outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating these conditions or performing urogynecologic procedures.

“We have a great urology team in Hanford from the office, to the hospital room, to the clinics,” says Dr. Jeffrey Csiszar, board-certifed urologist with Adventist Health. “We pride ourselves in expecting to have good outcomes.”

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data in 17 states between 2013 and 2015. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those who have received 5-stars and those who have not. For example:

  • From 2013 through 2015, patients undergoing a urogynecologic procedure in hospitals with 5-stars have, on average an 89 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital, than if they were treated in hospitals with 1-star.*
