Grand View Health has been recognized as one of the best hospitals for 2015-16 in the Philadelphia Metro Area and the state of Pennsylvania by U.S. News & World Report. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 26th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.

Among the 250 hospitals in Pennsylvania, Grand View has been regionally ranked as #12 in 2015-2016, while earning a #7 ranking as one of the best hospitals in the Philadelphia metro area. In addition, Grand View rated ‘High Performing’ in three adult procedures and conditions, including Heart Failure, Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement.

“We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to our patients as we strive to provide high-quality care to the local communities in the Philadelphia metro area,” said Jean M. Keeler, president and CEO of Grand View Health. “These rankings reaffirm the hard work and ongoing advancements that occur at Grand View Health as a result of our dedicated staff, physicians and volunteers who are leading the community to a healthier future in 2015 and beyond.”

“A Best Hospital has demonstrated expertise in treating the most challenging patients,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “A hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of.”

In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals that perform nearly at the level of their nationally ranked peers in one or more specialties, as well as hospitals that excel in multiple common procedures and conditions.

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 extra risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.

The rankings are freely available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2016” guidebook, available in August from the U.S. News Store.
