LAS VEGAS, July 29, 2020 – The Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican, Siena Campus has been recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report. The Siena Campus is the only hospital in southern Nevada to earn the survey’s highest rating in three different specialty care areas.
The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their sixth 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.
The Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Siena Campus earned a “High Performing” rating in three categories: Congestive 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 those types of care.
“The hardworking professional staff of the Siena Campus is honored to be named a High Performing Hospital by U.S. News & World Report,” said Lawrence Barnard, President of Dignity Health Nevada and Chief Executive Officer of the Siena Campus. “To be singled out in this data-driven national survey for consistently delivering top quality care in these specialty areas is validation of the work we do here every day.”
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.
