We're among America's best 250 hospitals - again!

Awards & Recognition

Adventist Health Glendale today announced that it is one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This achievement puts Adventist Health Glendale in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures. This is the 2nd consecutive year Adventist Health Glendale is among America’s Best!

Adventist Health Glendale remains dedicated in providing world-class care to Glendale and its surrounding communities,” shares Alice Issai, Adventist Health Glendale President. "This recognition, along with our 16 consecutive A grades from The Leapfrog Group and our three consecutive 5-star ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, validates the expertise delivered safely to thousands of patients each year.”

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 250 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 250 Best, over 160,000 lives could have been saved.

“We’re proud to recognize Adventist Health Glendale as one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023,” said Brad Bowman MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, Adventist Health Glendale consistently delivers better-than-expected outcomes for the patients in their community and is setting a high national standard for clinical excellence.”

“Our mission to inspire health, wholeness and hope in all those we serve is what drives us at Adventist Health Glendale,” explains Alice Issai, Adventist Health Glendale President. “This recognition is truly a reflection of our dedicated hospital staff members and our talented and committed physicians.”
