Sutter Roseville Medical Center Ranked Among Top
Sutter Roseville Medical Center and Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento have ranked as two of the best hospitals for 2014-15 in the Sacramento metropolitan area by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 25th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging health issues for patients.
"We have a strong culture of caring and clinical excellence," said Carrie Owen Plietz, CEO of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento. "It is our care teams' commitment to the patient experience and their clinical expertise that makes recognitions such as this from U.S. News & World Report even possible."
"This distinction is very meaningful for our patients," said Pat Brady, CEO of Sutter Roseville Medical Center. "These rankings are based on quality and safety data analysis, and are designed to help patients and families make informed choices about their specialized care needs. We are honored to receive such a significant acknowledgment of our quality."
Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento and Sutter Roseville Medical Center ranked no. 2 and no. 3 respectively in the Sacramento metropolitan area. Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento was also rated a high-performer in the care of patients needing gynecology, neurology and neurosurgery, oncology and orthopedic support. Additionally, Sutter Roseville Medical Center was rated a high-performer in gastroenterology and gastroenterological surgery, gynecology and orthopedic care.
For 2014-15, U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in most of the specialties. Just 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed for Best Hospitals 2014-15 earned national ranking in even one specialty.
U.S. News also recognizes hospitals that perform nearly at the level of their nationally ranked peers and represent valuable regional sources of quality care.
"The data tell the story - a hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of," says U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. "A Best Hospital has demonstrated its expertise in treating the most challenging patients."
U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face a particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or extra risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.
The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings.
The rankings are freely available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in the U.S. News "Best Hospitals 2015" guidebook, available in August.
