MelroseWakefield Hospital has, once again, been recognized as a regional 2022-2023 Best Hospital in the treatment of heart failure, COPD, and kidney failure by U.S. News and World Report.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 33rd 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.
In addition to the complex care evaluated in the Best Hospitals specialty rankings, U.S. News and World Report rates hospitals for their performance in treating more commonly occurring conditions and medical procedures.
The regional hospital rankings complement the national rankings by including hospitals with solid performance nearly at the level of nationally ranked institutions. The regional rankings are aimed primarily at consumers whose care may not demand the special expertise found only at a nationally ranked Best Hospital or who may not be willing or able to travel long distances for medical care. The U.S. News and World Report regional rankings give many such patients and their families more options of hospitals within their community and in their health insurance network.
As a leading community hospital, MelroseWakefield Hospital has earned numerous national recognitions this year. In February, Healthgrades ranked MelroseWakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital among the top 100 hospitals in the U.S. Additionally, MelroseWakefield Hospital received an “A” grade from the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022.
