Adventist Health Glendale Named One of the Best Hospitals in California

Adventist Health Glendale has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hospitals for 2018-19, ranking 15th out of the 133 hospitals in the Los Angeles metro area and 28th out of the 414 hospitals in California.
Adventist Health Glendale was also named high performing in three of the 16 specialty care rankings for excellence in orthopedics, neurology/neurosurgery and geriatrics, and in three of the nine procedure/condition ratings for top performance in congestive heart failure, colon cancer surgery and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 29th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.
“Adventist Health Glendale has a strong track record of providing high-quality patient care, as made evident by this recognition. To be voted among the best regional hospitals by U.S. News & World Report illustrates our commitment to those we have served in our community for more than 100 years,” said Alice Issai, president of the hospital. “I’m so proud of our entire team of talented physicians and associates for their dedication to excellence. I look forward to leading this great organization and expanding patient safety in all areas of our medical center.”
For the 2018-19 rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. In the 16 specialty areas, 158 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals as high performing across multiple areas of care.
“For nearly 30 years, U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more transparent to health-care consumers nationwide,” said Ben Harder, the publication’s managing editor and chief of health analysis. “By providing the most comprehensive data available, we give patients and their physicians’ information to support their search for the best care across a range of specialties.”
The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely or entirely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and re-admission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
