Richmond, VA – HCA Virginia's Chippenham, Henrico Doctors’, and Parham Doctors' Hospitals have been recognized as "High Performing" hospitals for 2020-2021 by U.S. News & World Report.
Chippenham Hospital earned "High Performing" ratings for heart failure, COPD, and hip replacement. Henrico Doctors' Hospital earned "High Performing" for heart failure, while Parham Doctors’ Hospital earned "High Performing" for knee replacement 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 these types of care.
Chippenham Hospital was also the recipient of “Best Regional Hospital” award.
The annual Procedures and Conditions ratings, now in their sixth 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.
"Caring for our patients like family is a hallmark of our mission," said William Lunn, M.D., chief executive officer of Chippenham and Johnston-Willis Hospitals. "I am proud to have such prestigious recognition of our team's efforts and their focus on providing world-class healthcare.”
For the 2020-2021 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Less than a third of all hospitals received a high-performing rating. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
"The work we do every day is not about earning awards or accolades," said Ryan Jensen, chief executive officer of Henrico Doctors' Hospitals. "However, living our mission of putting the care and improvement of human life above all else is what leads us to excel and give the best to our community. The independent recognition of our care team’s ongoing hard work just reinforces our focus on patient care."
The U.S. News Procedures and 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. The Procedures and Conditions ratings were produced by U.S. News analysts. For more information about the 2020-2021 rankings and ratings, please visit the U.S. News Best Hospitals site. The rankings will be published in the U.S. News "Best Hospitals 2021" guidebook, available for pre-order now from the U.S. News Online Store and for purchase at other bookstores in mid-September.
