Reston, VA - Reston Hospital Center has been recognized as a “Best Regional Hospital” and a “High Performing Hospital” for 2020-2021 by U.S. News & World Report.

Reston Hospital Center earned "High Performing" ratings for heart failure, hip replacement, and 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.

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.

"We are committed to the care and improvement of human life,” said John Deardorff, President and CEO of Reston Hospital Center and HCA's Northern Virginia market. "Our medical staff and care team live this mission and strive for excellence in everything we do. We are proud to receive this national recognition from U.S. News.”

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 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.
