California Pacific Medical Center was also among the top 50 hospital in the U.S. in the Gastroenterology & GI Surgery specialty ranking. Only 165 out of 4,500 U.S. hospitals evaluated received a national ranking in a least one of the 16 specialty areas.

And Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento was one of 57 hospitals across the nation (out of 4,500 surveyed) to earn high ratings for their handling of nine specific surgical procedures and chronic conditions.

Four Sutter hospitals are among the top 10 hospitals in the San Francisco metro area, including Alta Bates Summit Medical Center (Summit and Alta Bates Campuses), California Pacific Medical Center (Pacific Campus) and Mills-Peninsula Medical Center. Additionally, two Sutter hospitals are among the top 10 hospitals in the Sacramento metro area, including Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento and Sutter Roseville Medical Center.

“Recognitions like these honor our network’s doctors, nurses, clinicians and employees who dedicate themselves daily to delivering high-quality, compassionate care across Northern California,” said Bill Isenberg, M.D., vice president of Patient Safety for Sutter Health. “This work validates our ongoing commitment to improving quality and safety for our patients.”

Sutter Health’s not-for-profit network set out to build a truly integrated system—one that offers comprehensive patient services and quality health programs tailored to the diverse communities we serve. Today, Sutter Health cares for more than 3 million patients throughout its Northern California network of physicians, hospitals, home health providers and other services. Its coordination and focus on standardizing best practices reduce complications in care, lower hospital readmission rates and bring down the total cost of care.

“For 30 years, U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “By providing the most comprehensive data available on nearly every hospital across the United States, we give patients, families and physicians information to support their search for the best care across a range of procedures, conditions and specialties.”

The U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals survey ranked hospitals according to risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety, quality of nursing care, physician surveys and other care-related indicators.
