Redlands Community Hospital Named ‘Best Hospital’ for Treating Heart Failure, Hip Replacement, and Stroke by U.S. News & World Report

REDLANDS, Calif., - September 6, 2022 – Redlands Community Hospital earned a ‘High Performing’ rating, the highest rating available, in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals for Heart Failure, Hip Replacement, and Stroke Services.”

“We’re proud to have earned this exceptional national recognition for what we consider to be our standard level of high-quality care," said Redlands Community Hospital President and CEO James Holmes. "Our teams work diligently to ensure our patients in need receive the finest care and we’re honored to be recognized for our quality.”

The annual Best Hospital rankings and ratings list, now in its 33rd year, is designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.

To be recognized among the best hospitals for heart failure, hip replacement, and stroke services, hospitals had to excel on multiple quality metrics. Complication rates, re-admission rates, inspection prevention, nurse staffing, patient satisfaction, worker influenza and COVID-19 immunizations, as well as board certified physicians are included metrics in determining hospital scores. Only one-third of the hospitals evaluated by U.S. News for heart, stroke and hip replacement care earned a ‘High Performing’ rating.

For the 2022-2023 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. In the 15 specialties, 164 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. State and metro area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.

“The hospitals named among the best have extensive medical expertise and a history of delivering good outcomes,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “When patients and their medical professionals are considering their options for care, the rankings are designed to help them identify hospitals that are superior in the kind of care they may need.”

U.S. News evaluated each hospital’s performance using a variety of measures such as survival rates, complication rates, patient experience and level of nursing care. The Best Hospitals methodology factors in data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, American Hospital Association, professional organizations and medical specialists.
