Swedish among the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals for 2022-23

 

The U.S. News & World Report 2022-23 Best Hospitals rankings analyzed over 4,500 hospitals, which represents virtually all community inpatient facilities across the country.

Congratulations to Swedish First Hill which is ranked among the Best Hospitals in Seattle Metro as well as in Washington and received High Performing ratings in 10 procedures and conditions. Swedish Cherry Hill is also ranked among the Best Hospitals in Washington and the Seattle Metro area, achieving High Performing ratings in eight procedures and conditions. Swedish Edmonds and Swedish Issaquah both achieved High Performing ratings in four procedures and conditions.  

“We are extremely proud to be named among the nation’s best hospitals, as well as those here in the Seattle area,” said Guy Hudson, M.D., Swedish President and CEO and Chief Executive of the Providence Puget Sound North region. “These awards speak not only to the excellence of care throughout our hospitals, but also to the dedication of our caregivers who are committed to providing the best care for every person in every community we serve.”

The U.S. News Best Hospitals specialty rankings are meant for patients with life-threatening or rare conditions who need a hospital that excels in treating complex, high-risk cases. These rankings are helpful for patients looking for information about a rare condition or difficult diagnosis that isn’t treated at many facilities.
