These AdventHealth facilities have garnered multiple accolades based on recent research by Healthgrades, a top resource for consumers seeking hospitals or doctors.

“Healthgrades’ ratings reflect not just numbers, but the dedication and expertise of our healthcare professionals in consistently delivering top-quality services,” said Mike Murrill, President and CEO of AdventHealth Zephyrhills, AdventHealth Dade City and AdventHealth Connerton. “We are honored to have such a wonderful medical team providing award-winning care to those we serve."

These achievements place these AdventHealth facilities in the upper echelon of hospitals for specialty care and reflect the organization’s commitment to consistently deliver the best care possible.

"As established providers of whole person care in the Pasco County community, we're deeply honored to be acknowledged with so many awards between AdventHealth Wesley Chapel and AdventHealth Zephyrhills,” said Erik Wangsness, President and CEO of AdventHealth Wesley Chapel. "This recognition from Healthgrades celebrates not just our commitment to the best clinical outcomes, but also the kind of personalized care our community deserves.”

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and complications. By focusing on what matters most, patient outcomes, Healthgrades ratings provide critical feedback for both patients and hospitals. By offering easy access to objective performance measures, Healthgrades gives consumers the information they need to find a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. By shining a light on strengths and weaknesses, Healthgrades ratings help direct hospitals to opportunities for clinical improvement. The 2024 hospital assessment evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.

The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed that the variation in performance among hospitals continues to widen, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs. From 2020 through 2022, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to five-star hospitals, on average, 215,667 lives could potentially have been saved, and 149,521 patients could have avoided potential complications. *

“Healthgrades congratulates AdventHealth Wesley Chapel and AdventHealth Zephyrhills for being national leaders and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high-quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Your dedication, expertise and tireless efforts have not only set you apart but have also positively impacted the lives of countless patients.”
