U.S. News & World Report Names Saint Vincent Hospital a “Best Regional Hospital” and “High Performing” for Multiple Service Lines

Jul 28, 2020

Worcester, MA – Saint Vincent Hospital has been recognized as a “Best Regional Hospital” for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report, coming in at number eight in the state of Massachusetts. Saint Vincent Hospital also earned “High Performing” ratings for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Heart Failure, Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for these types of care.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 6th 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 beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.

“It’s truly remarkable to be named as one of the best regional hospitals and to have four services with high performing ratings,” says Saint Vincent Hospital Chief Executive Officer Carolyn Jackson. “This designation is amazing, but not surprising given the dedication and compassion the team at Saint Vincent Hospital has for our patients”.

For the 2020-21 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 10 procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 37 earned this rating in all 10 Procedures & Conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.

“For more than 30 years, U.S. News & World Report has been helping patients, along with the help of their physicians, identify the Best Hospitals in an array of specialties, procedures and conditions,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “The hospitals that rise to the top of our rankings and ratings have deep medical expertise, and each has built a track record of delivering good outcomes for patients.”

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.
