HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast announced today that it is one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2024, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This achievement puts HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance and along with Specialty Excellence Awards from Healthgrades reflects HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast’s commitment to exceptional patient care.

“HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast is committed to improving patient care by adhering to the latest treatment guidelines,’ said Yasmene McDaniel, CEO of HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast. “Healthgrades criteria make it easier for our teams to put proven knowledge and guidelines to work on a daily basis, which helps us ensure more people in Pasadena and the surrounding area experience longer, healthier lives.”

To determine the top hospitals for 2024, Healthgrades evaluated risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates for more than 30 conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide. Unlike other hospital studies, Healthgrades ratings are based solely on what matters most: patient outcomes. The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed significant variation in hospital performance, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs. From 2020-2022, if all hospitals, as a group, performed similarly to America’s 250 Best Hospitals, on average, 178,402 lives could potentially have been saved.*

“Healthgrades commends HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast for their leadership and continued dedication to high quality care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast is elevating the standard for quality care nationwide and ensuring superior outcomes for the patients in their community.”
