St. Mary’s General Hospital has been recognized by Healthgrades as a 2022 Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award™ recipient for the fifth year in a row. This distinction places St. Mary’s General among the top 5% of hospitals evaluated for quality outcomes in gynecologic surgery by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients.

This accomplishment would not be possible without the medical staff leadership of surgeons Dr. Vinay Shah, Dr. Mahipa Pallimulla, Dr. Shahrokh Ahkami, Dr. Consetta Cheatam, Dr. Theodore Witter, and Dr. Vijay Pendse, along with our teams of quality professionals in the Operating Room, and Maternal-Child Health, which facilitates patients post-op.

Patients treated in hospitals receiving the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award, have, on average, a 46.8% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award.
