AdventHealth Orlando has been recognized as a Best Hospital for 2021-22 by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 32nd year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.
In addition to being named the No. 1 hospital in metro Orlando, AdventHealth Orlando was also nationally ranked in diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery; and neurology and neurosurgery. The hospital was also rated “high performing” in six additional specialties: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; geriatrics; orthopedics; pulmonology and lung surgery; and urology.
“We are honored to be recognized as the best hospital in metro Orlando, and as a national leader in many specialties,” said Randy Haffner, president and CEO of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “This recognition is made possible by our team members, whose dedication to clinical excellence, compassionate care and innovation are unmatched. I applaud our entire team for their commitment to our community, even amid these unprecedented challenges.”
For the 2021-22 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,750 medical centers nationwide in 15 specialties and 17 procedures and conditions. In the 15 specialty areas, 175 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals as high performing across multiple areas of care.
“This year’s expanded report from U.S. News includes new ratings for important procedures and conditions to help each patient pick the right hospital for the type of care they need,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “Hospitals faced incredible challenges this past year, and the best of them have provided great care throughout the pandemic and continue to offer excellent care today.”
The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
