U.S. News & World Report Names Adventist Health Portland Among Best Hospitals 2023–2024 as High Performing

News, Awards & Recognition

Adventist Health Portland has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2023–2024 Best Hospitals as a High Performing hospital for back surgery, COPD, pneumonia, kidney failure, heart failure and heart attack — the highest distinction from U.S. News.

The annual ratings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.

“We’re so pleased to be recognized in these key clinical areas” says Dr. Wes Rippey, area medical officer for Adventist Health. “When you bring your loved one to Adventist Health Portland, you know they’re receiving high-quality care.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.

“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”
