U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, has named Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center (LHDCMC) as a 2022-2023 High Performing hospital for six procedures and conditions. This is the highest award 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.
LHDCMC earned High Performing ratings for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure, kidney failure, pneumonia, and stroke, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from U.S. News & World Report,” said Deneen Richmond, president of Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center. “These achievements demonstrate the unwavering dedication of our team members to deliver the best care to patients and the communities we’ve served for nearly 50 years. With our new behavioral health facility about to open, this award reaffirms our commitment to find innovative ways to improve the health and well-being of our residents.”
For the 2022-2023 Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. Fewer than half of all hospitals received any High Performing rating, and only four earned this rating in all procedures and conditions. State and metro area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.
“When patients are considering their options for care, the Best Hospitals ratings are designed to help them identify hospitals that excel in the kind of care they may need,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “A hospital that’s earned a High Performing rating in a service may be a good option for patients in need of that service and their medical professionals to consider.”
The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as survival rates, patient experience, and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home.
