Surgical Specialty Hospital of Arizona Receives Top Honors

dr terry simpsonCongratulations to Dr. Terry Simpson and the Surgical Specialty Hospital of Arizona.  The hospital received top honors from HealthGrades as the number one weight loss hospital in the state, and has been ranked in the top ten percent in the nation. HealthGrades rates nearly all of the nation’s 5,000 hospitals across 26 different procedures and diagnoses.

According to HealthGrades’ 2011 Bariatric Surgery Trends in American Hospitals report, bariatric surgery patients have an almost 70% lower risk of experiencing an in-hospital complication at top-rated hospitals compared to poorly-rated hospitals. The findings are from a study of over 190,000 weight loss surgery patient records from 2007–2009 and included 468 hospitals in 19 states.
