U.S. News and World Report Names Hialeah Hospital a High Performing Hospital for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary DiseaseFeb 17, 2020
August 6, 2019 – Hialeah Hospital is pleased to announce it is being recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report. The annual U.S. News & World Report Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 5th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support geared toward complex specialty care.
“For the Hialeah community, it is really important they know they have a hospital that’s so highly regarded by an independent organization such as U.S. News & World Report, said Michael Bell, chief executive officer of Hialeah Hospital. The people who work at Hialeah Hospital focus on providing exceptional, compassionate care and this recognition validates our recent efforts to improve in every area for our community.”
For the 2019-20 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Less than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating.
“For 30 years, U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “By providing the most comprehensive data available on nearly every hospital across the United States, we give patients, families and physicians information to support their search for the best care across a range of procedures, conditions and specialties.”
The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as risk-adjusted outcome rates, volume, quality of nursing and other care-related indicators. The Procedures & Conditions ratings were produced by U.S. News analysts.
