WEST CHESTER, PA — Penn Medicine hospitals have once again been ranked among the top hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The combined enterprise of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center was named to the magazine’s prestigious Honor Roll list for the 15th consecutive year. HUP/PPMC is also ranked as the top hospital in Pennsylvania and #1 in the Philadelphia metro area in the 2021-2022 survey.
HUP/PPMC is among only 20 institutions named to the publication’s Honor Roll — and the only one in Pennsylvania or the Philadelphia region — out of more than 4,500 hospitals analyzed nationwide. Hospitals must perform near the top of the rankings in multiple specialties and conditions/treatments in order to earn a place on the Honor Roll.
Locally, Chester County Hospital was ranked #8 in the Philadelphia region and #14 in the state. The hospital was also rated as high performing in gastroenterology (GI) and GI surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and lung surgery, as well as heart failure, heart attack, stroke, back surgery, hip replacement, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pneumonia.
In speaking of the recognition, Chester County Hospital President and CEO Michael Duncan stated, “Chester County Hospital relentlessly pursues new clinical services and higher levels of quality to provide the best care possible for our community. The recognition of those efforts from U.S. News & World Report is an honor and a testament to our frontline workers. I am filled with pride and admiration for our staff and excited to continue to bring new services, treatments and high-quality care to our friends, families and neighbors.”
