We are proud to announce that for the third consecutive year, Sutter Delta Medical Center received the Emergency Medicine Excellence Award™ from HealthGrades®. This award means that the medical center ranks among the top five percent of hospitals nationwide that provide patients with the highest quality care from the moment they are admitted to the hospital from the Emergency Department through their entire hospital stay, until discharge.

“Receiving this recognition for a third year truly takes the hard work and dedication of each and every employee and our dedicated medical staff,” says CEO Gary Rapaport. “Our patients have a choice of where they receive healthcare, so positive experiences at SDMC help spread the word around our community.”

The findings of HealthGrades Emergency Medicine in America report were based on analysis of more than seven million Medicare patient records from 2008 to 2010. The report focused on 12 of the most common and life-threatening medical emergencies among patients, including heart attack, stroke, pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
