August 9, 2021 – Holy Cross Health has been recognized as a Best Hospital for 2021-22 by U.S. News & World Report. The non-profit hospital is ranked among the top 10 in South Florida and top 25 in the state and was also recognized as high performing in COPD, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, hip replacement, knee replacement and stroke.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 32nd 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.
“We are committed to the highest quality, compassionate care,” said Holy Cross Health CEO and President Mark Doyle. “We are proud of our high performing ranking in seven key health specialties. This is an honor and a testament to the team at Holy Cross whose dedication to our patients during one of the most challenging years yet is unmatched. We continue to focus on enhancing and advancing technology, research and procedures to improve the health of our communities.”
The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies 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.
“This year’s expanded report from U.S. News includes new ratings for important procedures and conditions to help each patient pick the right hospital for the type of care they need,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “Hospitals faced incredible challenges this past year, and the best of them have provided great care throughout the pandemic and continue to offer excellent care today.”
Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
