July 26, 2022 – US News & World Report, the global authority on hospital rankings and consumer advice, has named Holy Cross Health a 2022-2023 High Performing Hospital for eight conditions. This is the highest honor a hospital can earn for US News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions rankings.
Annual Procedures and Conditions Assessments are designed to help patients and their physicians make informed decisions about where to receive care for difficult health conditions or elective procedures.
Holy Cross Health received a high performance rating for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Diabetes, Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Hip Replacement, Kidney Disease, Knee Replacement and Stroke, in recognition of significantly better care than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.
“Our team continues its commitment to be a transformative and healing presence in the communities we serve,” said Mark Doyle, President and CEO of Holy Cross Health. “Given the extensive work we have done with the Diabetes Prevention Program, we are delighted to see diabetes newly added to the list of specialties we are recognized for.”
For the 2022-2023 Best Hospitals Rankings and Ratings, US News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. Less than half of all hospitals received a high performance rating, and only four achieved this rating across all procedures and conditions. State and metropolitan area rankings reflect the region’s top performing hospitals in several areas of care.
“As patients consider their care options, the Top Hospitals Rankings are designed to help them identify hospitals that excel at the kind of care they might need,” said Ben Harder, chief analytics officer of the health and editor at US News. “A hospital that has achieved a high performance rating in a service may be a good option for patients needing that service and their healthcare professionals to consider.”
The procedures and conditions of American news methodology relies entirely on objective measures of quality such as survival rates, patient experience, and how well each hospital helps patients get home.
