OHC is proud to announce that we have recently been recognized for several national awards based upon safety of care as well as the patient experience of care. The first recognition is provided by The Leapfrog Group, a nationally recognized non-profit organization who reviews 30 patient quality and safety measures and assigns a letter grade to over 2,600 hospitals nationally based upon outcomes. The 2018 spring letter grade for OHC is an “A.”, our fourth consecutive “A” with OHC as one of only 8 in New York to achieve an "A" for Spring 2018. The second recognition is for the Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award. Our hospital is in the top 10% nationally for patient experience as recognized by Healthgrades and is one of only 8 hospitals in New York to receive this award for 2017. The third recognition is the Women's Choice Award, our second consecutive award for patient experience as a top 100 hospital. All of these awards are based, in part, on our CMS 4-Star rating for patient experience.
