    DOVER—Wentworth-Douglass Hospital has received five-star grades for its treatment of heart failure and pneumonia, according to research released by a major healthcare data company last month.

    Healthgrades utilized Medicare patient data from 2018-2020 and independently analyzed each short-term acute care hospital in the country - roughly 4,500 hospitals.

    This is the eighth consecutive year Wentworth-Douglass has received the honor for its treatment of pneumonia, which is an infection of the lungs by viruses or bacteria.

    The American Red Cross also honored the hospital in 2021 for its commitment to managing heart failure, with its “Silver Plus Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure Quality Achievement Award”.

    Earlier this year, Healthgrades awarded the hospital honors for its overall patient experience (for the eighth consecutive year, placing the hospital among the top 5% nationwide) and for excellence in pulmonary care (second consecutive year) as well.
