Covenant Health Hospitals Named to U.S. News & World Report 'Best Hospitals' Ranking
Fort Sanders Regional
Medical Centers have been ranked among the top 10 Best Hospitals in Tennessee by U.S. News & World Report. The publication's annual 'Best Hospitals' ranking recognizes hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.
“We are very proud of our physicians, nurses and employees who work diligently to provide excellent care for our patients, who are ultimately the true beneficiaries of the awards,” said Covenant Health President and CEO Tony Spezia.
For the past several years Covenant Health has been named among the top health systems in the country. Covenant's hospitals and medical facilities are known for quality and award-winning care, according to Spezia. “At Covenant Health, we are committed to providing excellent care for every patient, every time,” he said.
U.S. News evaluates hospitals in 16 adult specialties. In most specialties, it ranks the nation’s top 50 hospitals and recognizes other high-performing hospitals that provide care at nearly the level of their nationally ranked peers. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety, adequacy of nurse staffing, and other data largely determine the rankings in most specialties.
“A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. “Only about 15 percent of hospitals are recognized for their high performance as among their region’s best."
U.S. News publishes 'Best Hospitals' to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age.
The rankings have been published at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals
and will appear in print in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014 guidebook, available in bookstores and on newsstands Aug. 27.
