U.S. News & World Report names Pelham Medical Center among Best Hospitals as High Performing

By Staff reports on August 25, 2023

Pelham Medical Center has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2023-2024 Best Hospitals as a high performing hospital for four procedures and/or conditions. 

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 doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures. 

Pelham Medical Center was named high performing for the following procedures and/or conditions:

  • Back Surgery (spinal fusion) 
  • COPD 
  • Hip Replacement 
  • Kidney Failure 

“At Pelham Medical Center, patient care and the patient experience come first. Our team of physicians, leaders and clinicians have partnered to achieve spine surgery and hip & knee surgery designations, and the U.S. News & World Report achievement validates those efforts,” said Tony Kouskolekas, president of Pelham Medical Center. “Our team is incredibly grateful to serve a growing, vibrant community, and we look forward to providing world-class health care to families in the Upstate as our region continues to flourish.” 

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.”
