This is the first time Siena has received the award. The award was based on receiving high-performing hospital designations for four indicators: COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), heart failure, hip replacement and knee replacement.
Other high-performing designations received by Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican facilities are:
- Rose de Lima Campus – COPD
- San Martín Campus – COPD and heart failure
The U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 27th year, help guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across 25 specialties, procedures, and conditions. The Best Hospitals methodologies include objective measures such as patient survival, the number of times a given procedure is performed, infection rates, adequacy of nurse staffing, and more.
For 2016-17, 1,628 hospitals received a high performing rating in one or more specialties, procedures or conditions. In rankings by state and metro areas, such as Las Vegas, U.S. News also recognized hospitals that were high-performing across multiple areas of care with the Best Regional Hospitals designation. In 2016-17, 505 hospitals were recognized as Best Regional Hospitals.
"We applaud the efforts of our medical staff and employees," said Brian Brannman, senior vice president of operations, Dignity Health Nevada. "They work in partnership with our patients, visitors, and community, to consistently and constantly improve the safety and quality of the care we provide. St. Rose is proud of this recognition."
"U.S. News evaluates nearly 5,000 hospitals nationwide," said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis at U.S. News. "A hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of."
Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. The rankings were published in the U.S. News "Best Hospitals 2017" guidebook. For more information, visit Best Hospitals and use #BestHospitals on Facebook and Twitter.
