Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic recently announced that St. Mary Medical Center has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report — the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice — as a 2022-23 Best Hospital.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in the 33rd year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
St. Mary’s High Performing procedures and conditions include: congestive heart failure; COPD; diabetes; heart attack; hip replacement; kidney failure; knee replacement; and stroke.
Nazareth Hospital and Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital were also recognized.
“I am proud to see St. Mary Medical Center and Nazareth Hospital so well-represented on this year’s U.S. News & World Report lists,” said Michael Magro, DO, MBA, FACOI, president of St. Mary and Nazareth. “These awards are a testament to the incredible dedication of our colleagues in continuously providing outstanding treatment and service to our patients and community.”
For the 2022-23 Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. Fewer than half of all hospitals received any High Performing rating, and only four earned this rating in all procedures and conditions. State and metro area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.
The U.S. News procedures and conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality, such as survival rates, patient experience, and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home.
