St. Mary’s Hospital has been recognized as one of the best hospitals for 2016-17 in Wisconsin by U.S. News & World Report.
St. Mary’s also received designation as a Best Regional Hospital, a status earned by just 10% of the nearly 5,000 hospitals evaluated. U.S. News health care analysts ranked St. Mary’s high performing in seven out of nine common care procedures: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, colon cancer surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hip replacement and knee replacement.
“I am proud that St. Mary’s Hospital has been acknowledged as a top hospital by U.S. News & World Report,” said St. Mary’s Hospital President Jon Rozenfeld. “This is a result of not only sustained exceptional care, but of our efforts to improve the delivery of care to our patients by our staff, physicians and volunteers. I am grateful for our team’s dedication to our patients and their families, as we support our Mission.”
The U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 27th year, help guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. The Best Hospitals methodologies include objective measures such as patient survival, the number of times a given procedure is performed, infection rates, adequacy of nurse staffing and more.
For 2016-17, 153 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty, while 1,628 received a high performing rating in one or more specialties, procedures or conditions. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals that were high-performing across multiple areas of care.
Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
The rankings will be published in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2017” guidebook, available for pre-sale August 1. For more information, visit Best Hospitals and use #BestHospitals on Facebook and Twitter.
