ORLANDO, Fla., July 26, 2022 – AdventHealth Orlando has been recognized as a 2022-2023 Best Hospital by U.S. News & World Report.
The hospital was rated the No. 1 hospital in the Orlando metro area, and the No. 2 hospital in the state. It’s the 12th year in a row AdventHealth Orlando has claimed the top spot in Central Florida.
In addition, the hospital was ranked among the top 50 in the nation for six medical specialties: cancer; diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology and GI surgery; neurology and neurosurgery; obstetrics and gynecology; and orthopedics. Another four specialties — cardiology and heart surgery; geriatrics; pulmonology and lung surgery; and urology — were recognized as “high-performing.”
In addition, AdventHealth Daytona Beach was named the No. 1 hospital in the Daytona-Deltona metro area, and AdventHealth Waterman earned the ranking of No. 3 hospital in the Orlando metro area.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 33rd year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
“I am so proud of our physicians, nurses and the entire team for receiving this gold standard in care by U.S. News & World Report,” said Randy Haffner, president and CEO of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “Being recognized for 12 consecutive years as Orlando’s No. 1 hospital, combined with our nationally ranked specialties, demonstrates our team’s unparalleled and consistent commitment to clinical excellence.”
For the 2022-2023 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. For the first time, U.S. News rated eligible hospitals in ovarian cancer surgery, prostate cancer surgery and uterine cancer surgery. In the 15 specialties, 164 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. State and metro area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.
“The hospitals named to the U.S. News Honor Roll excel across numerous specialties and service lines,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “When patients and their medical professionals are considering their options for care, the rankings are designed to help them identify hospitals that are superior in the kind of care they may need.”
U.S. News evaluated each hospital’s performance using a variety of measures such as survival rates, complication rates, patient experience and level of nursing care. The Best Hospitals methodology factors in data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, American Hospital Association, professional organizations and medical specialists.
