ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Presbyterian Hospital* has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2023-2024 Best Hospitals, also being named as a High Performing hospital for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, diabetes, heart failure, heart attack, hip replacements, knee replacements, stroke, kidney failure, leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, prostate cancer surgery, and pneumonia care. The rankings assist patients and their doctors in choosing the right hospital for them. This is the highest distinction a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings.
The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions; only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.
“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients
and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”
* 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.
