U.S. News & World Report Names Providence Health a High Performing Hospital in Four Heart and Orthopedic Procedures

July 28, 2020

Washington, D.C. – July 28, 2020 – Providence Health has been recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report.

Providence Health earned “High Performing” ratings for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Heart Failure, Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 6th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.

“Our priority has always been to provide the highest quality care to our patients and being among the nation’s best is very humbling,” says Terry Gunn, Market CEO, Providence Health. “Providence Health is blessed to have a strong team of medical professionals who consistently exceed expectations and continue our long tradition of excellence in cardiac and orthopedic care.”

For the 2020-21 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 10 procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 37 earned this rating in all 10 Procedures & Conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.

The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as risk-adjusted outcome rates, volume, quality of nursing and other care-related indicators.
