Southwest Healthcare Palmdale Regional Medical Center has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2024-2025 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 & Conditions ratings. 

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings are designed to assist patients and their healthcare providers in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures. 

“We are honored to be given this recognition from U.S. News & World Report in the area of heart attack care,” said Nana Deeb, Chief Executive Officer. “This recognition along with our certification as a designated STEMI Receiving Center allows our community to see that we take quality patient care and safety seriously. It takes a team of focused individuals to make these things happen. To our medical staff, our Cath Lab Medical Director, Dr. Ranjiv Choudhary, and our extraordinary supportive team members, we extend a genuine thank you for all that you do for our patients. You save lives every day and it does not go unnoticed.” 

U.S. News evaluated nearly 5,000 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.

“For 35 years, U.S. News has been a leading resource for patients navigating their health care decisions,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “The ‘High Performing’ designation acknowledges hospitals that consistently deliver high-quality care for specific medical procedures and conditions. This recognition highlights their expertise and commitment to patient well-being.” 

To calculate the Best Hospitals rankings, U.S. News evaluated each hospital’s performance on objective measures such as risk-adjusted mortality rates, preventable complications and level of nursing care. The Best Hospitals Specialty rankings methodology and Procedures & Conditions ratings methodology measure patient outcomes using data from millions of records provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This year, among other methodology refinements, U.S. News incorporated new data on care provided to patients with Medicare Advantage insurance and on care provided to outpatients, nearly doubling the number of patients included in its annual data analysis. The Procedures & Conditions ratings are based entirely on objective quality measures.
