Overlake Medical Center & Clinics has again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Regional Hospital” in its 2023-2024 hospital ratings and rankings released today.
Overlake also received 16 “High Performing” emblems—the highest distinction a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings—in the following categories:
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair.
- Spinal Fusion.
- Heart Bypass Surgery.
- Heart Failure.
- Colon Cancer Surgery.
- Heart Attack.
- Hip Replacement.
- Hip Fracture.
- Kidney Failure.
- Knee Replacement.
- Leukemia, Lymphoma & Myeloma.
- Prostate Cancer Surgery.
- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR).
These recognitions are aimed at assisting patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care. Annually, these rankings and ratings are considered some of the most highly sought after by healthcare facilities across the country and are based upon rigorous analysis.
“To receive this recognition from U.S. News & World Report is an incredible honor for the exceptional and dedicated team here at Overlake,” says Overlake President and CEO J. Michael Marsh. “As part of Overlake’s values, we strive every day to work together as a team to provide the safest, most compassionate and highest quality care to our patients. These rankings and ratings prove that we are doing just that— and fulfilling our commitment to the community that has stood behind us for more than 60 years.”
U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions, and only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a “Best Hospitals” ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.
“For 34 years, U.S. News & World Report has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” says Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”
