U.S. News & World Report has released the 2022-2023 Best Hospital Ratings and named Corpus Christi Medical Center (CCMC) among the Best Regional Hospitals in the Gulf Coast region. This exclusive award also recognizes CCMC as high performing in eight specialties and the 25th best hospital in Texas.
“We are proud to be recognized as a national leader in healthcare from U.S. News and World Report,” said Eric Evans, CEO at Corpus Christi Medical Center. “This achievement is a testament to the unwavering dedication and commitment to the world-class clinical excellence delivered by our caregivers every day.”
For the 2022-2023 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. For the first time, U.S. News rated eligible hospitals in ovarian cancer surgery, prostate cancer surgery and uterine cancer surgery. 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.
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.
This year, Corpus Christi Medical Center was recognized for eight high performing procedure and condition areas including:
- Heart Attack
- Heart Failure
- Hip Replacement
- Knee Replacement
- Kidney Failure
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 33rd year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
“When patients are considering their options for care, the Best Hospitals ratings are designed to help them identify hospitals that excel in the kind of care they may need,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “A hospital that's earned a High Performing rating in a service may be a good option for patients in need of that service and their medical professionals to consider.”
The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as survival rates, patient experience, and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home. For more information, visit Best Hospitals and use #BestHospitals on Facebook and Twitter.
