Mission Hospital in Asheville is one of the top 50 “Best Hospitals” in the United States for clinical excellence, as measured by the consumer ratings group Healthgrades, Mission Hospital announced today.
Healthgrades analyzed the clinical performance of nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide across more than 31 of the most common procedures and conditions, and Mission Hospital was the only hospital in North Carolina to get the “50 Best” award, Mission said.
It is the seventh straight year Healthgrades has awarded Mission the “America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award.”
“Healthgrades does not take into consideration perception or popularity in analyzing and rating hospitals,” the Mission news release said. Healthgrades ratings are based on the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review data for 2018 through 2020 and represent three-year estimates for Medicare patients only. Patient reviews and pricing are not included in the evaluations.
Healthgrades is published by Red Ventures, a media and marketing company based in Indian Land, South Carolina, that also publishes Lonely Planet travel guides, Chowhound, and TV Guide, and owns GameSpot, Giant Bomb, and The Points Guy.
“We are so proud of the team at Mission Hospital and grateful to Healthgrades for recognizing their hard work and exceptional care,” said Chad Patrick, CEO of Mission Hospital. — Peter Lewis
