Alton Memorial Hospital has been recognized for 2022-23 by U.S. News & World Report for “High Performing Procedures & Conditions in COPD, Heart Failure and Hip Fracture.”
The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their eighth year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.
Alton Memorial was honored in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” in a specialty means a hospital was in the top 10 percent of all evaluated hospitals for that specialty or procedure and condition. It is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.
“This recognition really belongs to all the communities we serve,” said Dave Braasch, RPh, FACHE, president of Alton Memorial Hospital. “We are honored to have our physicians, caregivers and team members who work tirelessly here every day recognized in this way. They strive to provide the very best care close to home — and it shows! These efforts genuinely reflect their commitment to our mission, which is focused on improving the health and well-being of all of those who live and work around us.”
