Bon Secours St. Francis Health System has been named a “Best Hospital” for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report, the health system announced Tuesday, July 28. The health system’s two Upstate hospital campuses – St. Francis Eastside and St. Francis Downtown – were ranked second in South Carolina and first in the Greenville area.
“Bon Secours is honored to have received top recognition not only in the Upstate but for the entire state of South Carolina by U.S. News & World Report in its ‘Best Hospitals’ listings,” says Matt Caldwell, president of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. “This recognition speaks to the quality, compassionate care that our providers, nurses and clinical staff provide to our patients each and every day.”
The U.S. News & World Report rankings and ratings are meant to provide information on local hospitals to patients and medical professionals. More than 4,500 medical centers were included in this year’s assessment.
Bon Secours St. Francis Health System also earned high ratings for common adult procedure and conditions in abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), colon cancer surgery, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and hip and knee replacements, according to the announcement.
The methodologies behind the rankings and ratings were mostly based on measurements such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume and quality of nursing, among other indicators.
