Mercy was rated as High Performing in hip replacement, knee replacement, back surgery (spinal fusion) and colon cancer surgery. The rating is in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.
For the 2021-22 rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,750 medical centers nationwide in 17 procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 11 earned this rating in all procedures and conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
The U.S. News Procedures & 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 & Conditions ratings were produced by U.S. News analysts.
In addition to this honor, Mercy recently re-earned Magnet certification for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Mercy was awarded the “Outstanding Patient Experience Award” for 2021 by Healthgrades; received an “A” grade in the spring 2021 national Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade; and was bestowed the Gold Beacon Award for Excellence from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN).
