U.S. News & World Report Ranks St. Cloud Hospital Top In Nation
U.S. News and World Report has ranked St. Cloud Hospital as one of 48 hospitals in the nation with strong ratings in the handling of nine surgical procedures and chronic conditions. The annual rankings evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals for how they handle nine surgical procedures and chronic conditions:
  • Colon cancer surgery
  • Lung cancer surgery
  • COPD
  • Heart failure
  • Heart bypass surgery
  • Aortic valve surgery
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
  • Knee replacement
  • Hip replacement
St. Cloud Hospital stands out with a top rating for treating all nine procedures and conditions. Barely 1 percent of hospitals evaluated received a top rating in all nine. St. Cloud Hospital also ranks nationally in four adult specialties: urology, pulmonology, geriatrics and diabetes & endocrinology. Each specialty is ranked within the top 50 in the nation. According to U.S. News and World Report, to be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients.
