U.S. News & World Report has named Owensboro Health Regional Hospital a 2022-2023 “High Performing Hospital” — the highest rating available — for the care of heart attacks, strokes, COPD, and kidney failure.
These annual ratings are intended to help patients and their doctors make informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions.
Based on patient outcomes, OHRH earned “High Performing” ratings for the care of heart attacks, strokes, COPD and kidney failure.
“We’re pleased to be recognized for our commitment to excellent care,” said Beth Steele, OHRH Chief Operating Officer. “Our physicians and team members demonstrate their dedication to our patients and community daily. We will continue to invest in innovative technology along with a focus on recruiting and retaining expert caregivers to ensure high quality, safety and service.”
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 “High Performing” ratings, and only four earned this rating in all procedures and conditions.
“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.
