2016 Awards, Honors & Recognitions

National Study: Presbyterian Named America’s 100 Best for Multiple Clinical Areas. Presbyterian Hospital* has been recognized by Healthgrades as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery, Joint Replacement Surgery, Stroke Care, and Pulmonary Care.

Presbyterian’s achievement is part of findings released on October 18, 2016 in the Healthgrades 2017 Report to the Nation. Healthgrades, the leading online resource helping consumers make informed decisions, evaluated nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions. It identified the 100 best-performing hospitals across all conditions or procedures evaluated within Orthopedics, Neurology, and Pulmonary Care. Healthgrades found that patients treated at hospitals receiving the America's 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement Award have, on average, a 60.3 percent lower risk of experiencing a complication in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.

*Combined data from all three Presbyterian Central New Mexico hospitals—Presbyterian Hospital, Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital and Presbyterian Rust Medical Center— were submitted under the umbrella of Presbyterian Hospital.
