Mission Hospital named one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for 2023

Press release from Mission Health:

Mission Hospital is proud today to announce that it is one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for 2023, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This achievement puts Mission Hospital in the top 1% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures. This is the 8th consecutive year Mission Hospital is among America’s Best, and Mission is the only hospital in North Carolina to make America’s Best Hospitals list.

“I am so proud of the entire Mission Hospital team. Mission Hospital has been committed to delivering high-quality care to Western North Carolina for more than 130 years and clearly that continues today,” said Chad Patrick, CEO, Mission Hospital. “We are grateful to Healthgrades for their independent evaluation of our clinical excellence.”

Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation between America’s Best 50 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 50 Best, over 150,000 lives could potentially have been saved.
