U.S. News & World Report has named Saint Agnes Medical Center as one of the Best Regional Hospitals in California, with high ratings for performance in three adult procedures.

In its 2018-19 ranking of U.S. Hospitals, U.S. News placed Saint Agnes in a tie for No. 43 in the state. According to the magazine’s ranking team, only 12 percent of the 4,500 U.S. hospitals received “Best” status.

“We’re humbled to be in the company of other prestigious California hospitals, but even more rewarding is knowing that we’re delivering on our promise to provide members of our community the exceptional care they deserve,” said Nancy Hollingsworth, Saint Agnes CEO.

Each year, U.S. News analyzes hospital performance in 25 clinical specialties, procedure and conditions. Scores are based on several factors, including survival, patient safety and nurse staffing. Using these factors and others, Saint Agnes was found to be high performing in heart bypass surgery, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Other California hospitals that have earned the U.S. News “Best” status include UCSF, Stanford Hospital, UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
