U.S. News & World Report Names Grady a High Performing Hospital
August 3, 2022
Grady Earns COPD, Diabetes, Heart Failure, Kidney Failure, and Stroke Honors
U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, has named Grady Hospital as a 2022-2023 High Performing hospital for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, Heart Failure, Kidney Failure, and Stroke. This is the highest award a hospital can earn for 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.
Grady earned High Performing ratings for COPD, Diabetes, Heart Failure, Kidney Failure, and Stroke, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.
“It’s an honor to receive recognition from U.S. News & World Report as a High Performing Hospital in these specialty areas of care,” said John M. Haupert, Grady President and CEO. “We are proud of the hard work and dedication our healthcare providers put forth each day to improve patient outcomes. This acknowledgment proves once again why Atlanta can’t live without Grady.”
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. State and metro area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.
“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.
