Eisenhower Health in Rancho Mirage has been regionally recognized as a Best Hospital by U.S. News & World Report — the only one in the Coachella Valley to do so.
Eisenhower ranked second in the Inland Empire and No. 21 in California. Loma Linda University Medical Center in Loma Linda was named the Best Regional Hospital in the Inland Empire, while UCLA Medical Center earned the top spot in California.
The Rancho Mirage hospital also received a “high performing” rating in 14 types of procedures and conditions: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic valve surgery, back surgery (spinal fusion), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, hip replacement, kidney failure, knee replacement, lung cancer surgery, pneumonia and stroke.
“Each day, our dedicated physicians, nurses and staff provide our community accessible, world-class treatment of serious and complex health conditions,” said Martin Massiello, president and chief executive officer, in a statement. “To be ranked, once again, among America’s Best Hospitals reflects that continued commitment to safe, compassionate care and the level of excellence our community has come to expect from Eisenhower Health.”
There were 531 hospitals that made it on the Best Regional Hospitals ranking, down from 563 last year, according to the U.S. News & World Report website.
The Best Hospitals rankings and ratings are meant to help patients and doctors decide where they can receive the best care. Measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume and quality of nursing are used to determine ratings for procedures and conditions.
Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs was also recognized by U.S. News & World Report as as a “high performing” hospital for five procedures and conditions.
