Palmdale Regional Medical Center has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2023-2024 Best Hospitals as a High Performing hospital for Heart Attack Care. This is the highest distinction a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures and Conditions ratings. The annual Procedures and Conditions ratings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from U.S. News & World Report in heart attack care,” says Nana Deeb, Chief Executive Officer, Palmdale Regional Medical Center. “Being a hospital that is certified as a STEMI Receiving Center, we take this accomplishment seriously and are very proud of our STEMI team that works tirelessly in providing critical, emergency care to our heart attack patients. This recognition is a definite reflection of their efforts.”
U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation 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. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”
