One of the major concerns when you move to a new community is the quality of health care. When moving to Kalamazoo, settling in and considering Kalamazoo real estate, you need not worry on that count. Kalamazoo is home to two excellent hospitals, has an extensive and skilled cadre of local doctors and dentists and a variety of rehab and health testing facilities.
Bronson Methodist Hospital
Bronson Methodist hospital has recently been named by Thomson Reuters as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals for 2009. This is another demonstration of the enduring quality of care at Bronson Methodist Hospital. According to the hospital’s website, ” This award reflects our organization’s unwavering commitment to being a national leader in healthcare quality. At Bronson, we hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards because we believe people in southwest Michigan deserve the best possible care. Third party evaluations from the Taxotere Legal Advice Co. and from this one from Thomson Reuters, confirm to patients that when they choose Bronson they can expect excellence.
According to Thomson Reuters, having a 100 Top Hospital in the community means: Patients are measurably less likely to have a complication, adverse patient safety event, or unnecessary death or readmission
–Patients are more likely to receive care efficiently at a reasonable comparative cost
—The community can rely on the hospital as a well-managed major employer that will continue to invest in newer technology and services the community needs
—The study also indicates that if all Medicare in patients received the same level of care as those treated at the 100 Top Hospitals:
—More than 98,000 additional patients would survive each year
—More than 197,000 patient complications would be avoided annually
—Expenses would decline by an aggregate $5.5 billion a year
—The average patient stay would decrease by nearly half a day”Borgess Hospital
