Bon Secours St. Francis has been recognized as a “Best Hospital” for 2022 by the U.S. News & World Report. Together, the health system’s two hospital campuses – St. Francis Eastside and St. Francis Downtown – were ranked first overall in the Greenville, S.C. area.
“We are incredibly proud to be recognized with this honor, as the distinction confirms our commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities by bringing good help to those in need. We have an outstanding, talented team who is unmatched in their dedication to ensuring our patients have access to exceptional care,” said Matt Caldwell, president of Bon Secours’ Greenville market.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 34th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions. Only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking, a designation meaning they 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.
Bon Secours St. Francis Health System earned high performing rating for common adult procedures and conditions in nine categories – Colon Cancer Surgery, Diabetes, Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Hip Replacement, Knee Replacement, Stroke, as well as Leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. These ratings are recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.
