McLaren Macomb earns ‘High Performing’ marks for care of serious, chronic conditions

McLaren Macomb, the 288-bed hospital serving all of Macomb County, has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report for its treatment of common, quality-of-life-hindering and potentially life-threatening conditions.

As part of its annual hospital rankings, U.S. News & World Report rated McLaren Macomb as ‘High Performing’ in its treatment and care of congestive heart failure, kidney failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and stroke.

A distinguished list, ratings take into account a health care provider’s proficiency in delivering care, as well as patients’ outcomes and experience.

Says McLaren Macomb president and CEO Tom Brisse, “To receive these honors is a reflection of the teamwork and collaboration among our physicians, nurses and other health care professionals, as well as their deep commitment to providing the highest quality care to the community we serve.”

Scores are determined following an analysis of care-related factors, such as patient outcomes, safety and staffing, and compared against more than 5,000 hospitals across the nation.

Heart and kidney failures occur when the vital organs’ functions fail beyond a life-sustaining threshold and require medical management and close monitoring. COPD is an inflammation of the lungs that can lead to obstructed airflow and difficulty breathing, while stroke is an interruption of blood flow in the brain and a leading cause of death in the United States.
