For the third consecutive year, Methodist Hospital was named the No.1 Best Regional Hospital for 2021-22 by U.S. News and World Report. A best regional hospital ranking is determined by a hospital’s performance in the adult specialty rankings analysis. Despite the continual impact the pandemic has had on the community, Methodist Hospital has upheld an unwavering commitment to patient-centered care, maintaining quality and safety at the forefront.
Methodist Hospital ranked high performance in eight procedures/conditions, three additional categories than years prior. The eight procedures and conditions include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, knee replacement and stroke.
Scores are based largely on objective measures, such as survival rates, volume and quality of nursing, patient safety, specialized staff and hospital satisfaction. Data collected from other Methodist Healthcare System hospitals -to include Methodist Children’s Hospital, Methodist Hospital Metropolitan, Methodist Hospital Northeast, Methodist Hospital Texsan, and Methodist Hospital Specialty and Transplant- contributed to Methodist Hospital’s designation.
“It gives us great pride to receive this recognition once again as it truly reflects the outstanding efforts and attention to safety our team members and physicians devote themselves to daily,” commented Dan Miller, Chief Executive Officer for Methodist Hospital and Methodist Children’s Hospital. “We have a continual focus on providing unparalleled care, and this designation affirms our commitment to bettering the lives of those in our community and beyond.”
For the 2021-2022 rankings, U.S. News & World Report evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide in 15 specialties. U.S. News and World Report is the global leader in quality rankings; these annual ratings are designed to help patients and physicians make informed decisions about where to receive care for specific medical needs, such as common elective procedures and complex surgeries.
