U.S. News & World Report Names Doctors Medical Center High Performing Hospital

Jul 26, 2022

Modesto, Calif. – July 26, 2022 – U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, has named Doctors Medical Center a High Performing hospital for 2022-23. This is the highest award a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.

Doctors Medical Center earned High Performing ratings for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Kidney Failure and Stroke, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.

“When patients are considering their options for care, these types of recognitions are designed to help them identify hospitals that excel in the type of care they may need,” said Warren Kirk, CEO of Doctors Medical Center. “We are so proud of our team for their continued commitment and dedication to making sure our patients in the Central Valley receive the safe, high-quality care they deserve across numerous specialties.”

For the 2022-2023 Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. Fewer than half of all hospitals received any High Performing rating, and only four earned this rating in all procedures and conditions. State and metro area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.

The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as survival rates, patient experience, and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home. For more information, visit Best Hospitals.
