U.S. News & World Report Names SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital - Madison Among Best in Wisconsin

MADISON, WI (August 8, 2017) –  St. Mary’s is rated fifth in the state in the annual U.S. News 2017-18 Best Hospitals rankings – up one spot from last year.

U.S. News also ranked St. Mary's as high performing in eight out of nine common care procedures – abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic valve surgery, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, colon cancer surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hip replacement and knee replacement – earning us designation as a Best Regional Hospital. Of nearly 4,500 hospitals whose data were evaluated by U.S. News' health care analysts over the last year, only 10% earned the right to be called Best Regional Hospitals.

“It’s an honor to be recognized once again by U.S. News & World Report,” said St. Mary’s Hospital President Jon Rozenfeld. “It’s a testament to the dedication of our physicians, staff and volunteers to provide exceptional care to every patient who comes through our doors. Each year our ranking has improved, which confirms our efforts to increase quality and safety for our patients are making a significant impact on outcomes.”

The annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 28th year, are part of U.S. News’ patient portal, designed to help patients make informed decisions about where to receive care for life-threatening conditions or for common elective procedures. The U.S. News methodologies include risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety, quality of nursing care and other care-related indicators.

“For nearly three decades, we’ve strived to make hospital quality more transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. "By providing the most comprehensive data available, we hope to give patients the information they need to find the best care across a range of specialties.”
