St. Joseph’s Health Earns “Best Regional Hospital” Honor for Sixth Consecutive Year

 

Syracuse, NY (July 28, 2020) – St. Joseph’s Health Hospital has been recognized as a Best Regional Hospital in Syracuse and Central New York for 2020-2021 by U.S. News & World Report, and ranked #16 in New York State. This recognition comes just shortly after St. Joseph’s was named the only hospital in Central New York to earn the highest “A” rating for patient safety by Leapfrog® Hospital Safety Grades for the third consecutive year, Best Maternity Hospital by Newsweek, and one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery according to Healthgrades. 

 

The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 31st year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.

 

St. Joseph’s Health Hospital was recognized as high-performing in the following procedures and conditions:

 

  1. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair
  2. Aortic Valve Surgery
  3. Heart Bypass Surgery
  4. Heart Failure
  5. Colon Cancer Surgery
  6. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  7. Hip Replacement
  8. Knee Replacement

“Receiving this recognition in the midst of a global pandemic is a testament to the expertise and devotion of all our colleagues. St. Joseph’s Health is committed to providing superior, safe and compassionate care to our community,” said Les Luke, president and CEO at St. Joseph’s Health. “To achieve this honor for six consecutive years reflects our dedication to a patient-centric model of care, and the community’s confidence in our pledge to protect them during these most uncertain times.”

 

For the 2020-21 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 16 specialties, 10 procedures and conditions. In the 16 specialty areas, 134 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized best regional hospitals based on high performing rankings across multiple areas of care.

 

“For more than 30 years, U.S. News & World Report has been helping patients, along with the help of their physicians, identify the Best Hospitals in an array of specialties, procedures and conditions,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “The hospitals that rise to the top of our rankings and ratings have deep medical expertise, and each has built a track record of delivering good outcomes for patients.”

 

The U.S. News Best Hospitalsmethodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.

 

Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
