Gwinnett Medical named top performer

Only Ga. hospital ranked by Modern Healthcare


LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Gwinnett Medical Center has earned a top performance rating from Modern Healthcare for its performance of coronary bypass graft surgery.

It joins the list of safety net hospitals that are top performers in four clinical areas. Gwinnett Medical Center is the only hospital in Georgia to be included in any of the list, which is determined from CMS data.

“This accomplishment reflects the work of the cardiovascular team who are committed to delivering excellence in cardiac surgical care,” said Dr. Alan Bier, executive vice president and chief medical officer of Gwinnett Medical Center.

“This team further enables GMC to fulfill its mission of providing our community the most advanced medical care.”

Nationwide, only 201 hospitals meet the criteria of being a safety net hospital. The magazine ranked outcomes in four clinical areas: total hip replacement, total knee replacement, coronary bypass graft surgery and cardiac valve replacement.
