The report is considered the definitive source for current hospital rankings and is used by both patients and referring physicians to make important health care decisions. The annual report evaluates data on nearly 5,000 hospitals and provides a detailed “scorecard” based on a number of important factors, including patient outcomes, volume of high-risk patients, overall patient experience, and the use of advanced clinical technologies.

The report also assesses clinical performance related to key cardiac conditions and procedures. Columbia achieved a “high performing” rating (the highest rating possible) for all categories, including conditions like heart attack and heart failure and procedures like aortic valve surgery, heart bypass surgery, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

About U.S. News & World Report's 'Best Hospitals' Rankings

U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or added risk because of other health problems or age. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties. The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International; a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings. All rankings have been published at and will appear in print in the U.S. News Best Hospitals guidebook, available in bookstores and on newsstands in September.
