Coordinated Health, part of Lehigh Valley Health Network, consistently delivers safe, high-quality care, and for the fifth year running it is being recognized for this by Healthgrades. To help patients and their families make informed decisions about where to seek high-quality care, Healthgrades provides information to the public about hospitals, doctors and health care organizations.

Coordinated Health–Allentown received the Healthgrades Patient Safety Award for the third year in a row and is among the top 5% of hospitals in the nation for providing safe care for the second consecutive year. Both Coordinated Health–Bethlehem and Coordinated Health–Allentown received specialty awards for orthopedic procedures such as joint replacement and spinal fusion, as they have in years past.

“Being ranked by Healthgrades as one of the top hospitals in the country for providing safe, high-quality care reflects the dedication of Coordinated Health colleagues,” says Amy Nyberg, President, Coordinated Health. “Our physician teams, nurses, physical therapists and hospital staff make us proud every day because of how committed they are to our patients.

Coordinated Health–Bethlehem is the recipient of Healthgrades’ Joint Replacement Specialty Excellence Award, which means the hospital is among the top 10% in the nation for joint replacements. For patients, this means a lower risk for complication during joint replacement surgery. In fact, Healthgrades data show a 61.1% lower risk for patients who receive care at a hospital with this recognition compared to those without it. Coordinated Health–Bethlehem received a 5-star rating for total knee replacement for the fifth year in a row and a 5-star rating for total hip replacement for the second year in a row.

“Being ranked by Healthgrades as one of the top hospitals in the country for providing safe, high-quality care reflects the dedication of Coordinated Health colleagues,“ says Amy Nyberg, President, Coordinated Health. “Our physician teams, nurses, physical therapists and hospital staff make us proud every day because of how committed they are to our patients.”

“Coordinated Health consistently receives awards from Healthgrades for safety. This achievement belongs to all of the hard-working colleagues who set a high standard for care and safety,” says Christine Biege, Vice President of Patient Care Services, Coordinated Health.

“Receiving these awards further shows that Coordinated Health puts care and safety first,” says Wayne Luchetti, MD, Chief of Staff and co-chair of the Department of Orthopedics, Coordinated Health. “Being recognized along with some of the best orthopedics specialists in the nation is an honor, and I’m proud of our team.”

Healthgrades evaluates roughly 45 million Medicare inpatient records from nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals across the U.S. to provide quality and safety information about hospitals, doctors and health care organizations.
