Presbyterian again named best regional hospital

July 26, 2022FeaturedPress Release

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Presbyterian Hospital* was again the only hospital in New Mexico to be named best regional hospital by U.S. News & World Report and was also recognized as a High Performing Hospital in nine areas of care:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

  • Colon Cancer Surgery

  • Diabetes

  • Heart Failure

  • Heart Attack

  • Hip and Knee Replacements

  • Stroke

  • Kidney Failure

In 2022-2023 U.S. News Best Hospitals ranked hospitals in the U.S. in 15 adult specialties as well as recognized hospitals by state, metro and regional areas for their work in 20 more widely performed procedures and conditions. Of the nearly 5,000 hospitals analyzed and 30,000 physicians surveyed, only 164 hospitals ranked in at least one of the specialties. Evaluations are based on patient outcomes measurements such as 30-day survival, as well as structural and process measurements such as patient satisfaction, the availability of advanced technologies, nursing quality, specialty-specific certifications, services for patients and their families, and expert opinions of specialists in the field.

For more than 30 years, the annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings have assisted patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.

* This distinction recognizes Presbyterian's three Central New Mexico hospitals – Presbyterian Hospital, Presbyterian Rust Medical Center and Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital. Combined data from all three Central New Mexico hospitals were submitted under the umbrella of Presbyterian Hospital.
