Local Hospitals Exceed National Standards in Patient Care

Laredo Specialty Hospital and Laredo Rehabilitation Hospital provide patients from Laredo and surrounding areas with specialized medical and rehabilitative care, consistently exceeding national standards in patient care.

The hospitals’ patient care results are compared quarterly to other long-term acute care and rehabilitation hospitals throughout the nation. Laredo Specialty Hospital’s results are reviewed and provided by the National Association of Long-Term Care Hospitals. The organization compares hospitals nationally on patient case mix, discharges, ventilator weaning, and wound rate. Laredo Rehabilitation Hospital’s patient care results are reviewed and provided by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation, comparing patient case mix, discharges, and change of patients’ physical and cognitive skills from admission to discharge.

“I believe we have consistently exceeded national averages because of the hospitals’ multidisciplinary teams and the dedication of the physicians who practice here,” says Mario Rodriguez, Area Director of Operations of Laredo Specialty Hospital and Laredo Rehabilitation Hospital. “We are passionate about patient care and never take our responsibility to our patients for granted. I think that our commitment is reflected in these results.”
