Allied Anesthesia is invested in a patient’s well-being from the moment they walk through the door until they get back to themselves again. Our hard work every step of the way not only makes our patients happy, it also helps make the hospitals we work with successful.
This is especially true for St. Joseph Hospital of Orange. Consumer Reports Magazine recently ranked them among the top 20% of hospitals in the nation when it comes to avoiding adverse events.
The ratings focused on five measures across 27 commonly scheduled surgeries. This included: infections related to catheters and tubes, surgical-site infections, readmissions, serious complications such as bed sores, collapsed lungs or blood clots and adverse events such as patient death. St. Joseph had 28 percent fewer adverse events than predicted.
Clearly, these results speak to the incredible staff and dedicated doctors at St. Joseph Hospital including the Allied Anesthesia team of physicians. We have worked to provide the best care from admissions through recovery, and in doing so, we have been able to help improve cost efficiencies, patient satisfaction and overall quality over the past decade.
Dr. Alejandro Ramirez, medical director of surgical services at St. Joseph, explained, “Unlike most anesthesiologists, who focus only on the surgical experience, Allied physicians think more globally by addressing risk factors from admissions through recovery. Allied really brings value to the health care that the hospital provides. As a result, St. Joseph is light years ahead of other institutions in terms of positive outcomes and patient and surgeon satisfaction.”
St Joseph Hospital is a wonderful example of what is possible through hard work and dedication. We are excited to support them as they continue to provide outstanding healthcare to Orange County.
