Mark Twain Medical Center is the Most Popular Hospital for Calaveras County Residents

New York, NY...Recent data shows that Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas saw the most Medicare discharges out of all hospitals for residents of Calaveras county from October 2015 to September 2016 by accounting for 494 and 23.36 percent of the 2,115 total discharges from county residents during the timeframe. Rounding out the top five in total discharge volume for Calaveras County residents was Adventist Health Sonora, which accounted for the 2nd most discharges with 361 and 17.07 percent of the county resident market share, St. Joseph’s Medical Center, which accounted for the 3rd most discharges with 251 and 11.87 percent of total discharges, Sutter Amador Hospital, which accounted for the 4th most discharges with 154 and 7.28 percent of the total discharges and Doctors Medical Center of Modesto, which accounted for the 5th most discharges from Calaveras County residents with 87 and 4.11 percent of the total discharges.




For physicians themselves, Dr. Craig H. Lovett led all physicians in discharge volume for Calaveras County residents, where he accounted for 38 and 1.8 percent of the 2,115 discharges from residents during the aforementioned time period. Dr. Lovett is an Orthopedic surgeon, who practices at Mark Twain Medical Center. When analyzing Orthopedic procedures specifically, one finds in the Dexur data that out of Dr. Lovett’s 38 Calaveras County resident discharges, 37 of these discharges fell under Orthopedics to give Dr. Lovett a 10.05 percent (368 total Orthopedic discharges) of county resident Orthopedic market share.

Along with Dexur’s discharge volume rankings, Dexur.com analyzes metrics such as length of stay and readmission rates so that patients can make an informed decision on where to go and who to see for their medical care. As the nation makes the transition towards value-based care, data will be an essential piece in choosing the right hospitals and physicians for one’s care.

By submitting basic information to Dexur’s online tool including zip code, type of procedure for which the patient is going to the hospital and any underlying medical conditions, Dexur provides the patient with cost and quality data for relevant discharges from hospitals in their area. By providing patients with cost and quality data for their specific situation, Dexur helps take the guessing out of choosing a hospital or physician, since patients can view the outcomes for people with a medical profile similar to theirs.

The information comes from Dexur.com, which has analyzed hospital and physician Medicare procedural volume at the national, state and county level across the United States. In regards to these analyses, the raw data comes from Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
