Doctors Medical Center Recognized by U.S. News & World Report

Jul 27, 2021

Modesto, Calif. – Doctors Medical Center has been recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2021-22 by U.S. News & World Report.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 7th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.

Doctors Medical Center earned “High Performing” ratings for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, Heart Attack, Heart Failure and Stroke, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.

“We are so proud of our entire team for consistently providing safe, high-quality and compassionate care to our patients every day,” said Warren Kirk, CEO of Doctors Medical Center. “It is an honor to be recognized on a national level for our unwavering commitment to taking care of our community. This recognition from U.S. News & World Report is a true testament to the hard work of our physicians, nurses and medical team across numerous specialties.”

For the 2021-22 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,750 medical centers nationwide in 17 procedures and conditions. Less than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 11 earned this rating in all procedures and conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings 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 Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as risk-adjusted outcome rates, volume, quality of nursing and other care-related indicators.
