U.S. News and World Report Names GAMC Among Nation's High Performing Hospitals

Awards & Recognition

Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC) has been rated a high performing hospital for heart failure in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals for Common Care. U.S. News evaluated hospitals in five procedures and medical conditions—heart bypass surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)—and rated them high performers, average or below average. 

"This is a significant achievement for our hospital, as it represents the results of an in-depth assessment of patient outcomes at more than 4,600 hospitals across the U.S.,” said Kevin A. Roberts, GAMC president/CEO. “Only 10 percent of hospitals evaluated by U.S. News earned a high-performing rating, which is a credit to the amazing work of our physicians, nurses, technicians and support team.”

U.S. News created Best Hospitals for Common Care to help patients find better care for the kinds of common procedures and medical conditions that account for millions of hospitalizations each year. The Best Hospitals for Common Care ratings rely on Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data for patients 65 and older, as well as survey data from the American Hospital Association and clinical registry data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
