Thursday Biz Wrap: Consumer Reports rates Kentuckiana Medical Center No. 1 for patient safety'
"If you’re not feeling great, you might want to head to the Sunny Side of Louisville. Kentuckiana Medical Center in Clarksville has come out of several reviews with the top safety rating in the Kentucky market. A market where it appears the rest of the competition is having a tough time when it comes to patient safety.
KMC, managed by Wichita, Kansas-based healthcare development firm Galichia Hospital Group, is ranked as the No. 1 Hospital in the Louisville area for patient safety by Consumer Reports.
That got them a shout out from WAVE-TV’s Eric Flack, who did the original reporting. Flack stated the highest safety score in Consumer Reports for Louisville area hospital ratings 'is far from a household name. It’s the Kentuckiana Medical Center in Clarksville, Indiana.'
Only KMC received an above-average rating for avoiding medical mortality, based on how likely patients are to die within 30 days of being admitted for a heart attack, heart failure, or pneumonia."
