LAS VEGAS – July 26, 2022 − U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, has named Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican’ Siena Campus as a 2022-2023 High Performing hospital for six different condition categories, more than any other southern Nevada hospital.
High Performing is the highest award a hospital can earn in 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.
In recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes, Siena Hospital earned High Performing ratings for:
- Heart Attack
- Heart Failure
- Knee Replacement
- Hip Replacement
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
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.
“The hardworking health care professionals at Siena are honored to once again be named a High Performing Hospital by U.S. News & World Report,” said Siena Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rod Buzzas. “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.”
Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News, said, “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. 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.
