Award-winning Care

Providence Saint John’s Health Center was built on a tradition of providing leading-edge, award-winning care in a compassionate, community hospital setting. I am honored to share that this commitment to excellence has continued in our 80-year as our health center received several prestigious awards from Healthgrades. The organization’s annual evaluation assesses hospital performance and patient outcomes at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 31 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.

Saint John’s Health Center, 2023-2024 Awards

This year our ministry was named one of Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Surgical Care and 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement, placing our hospital among the top 5% in the nation for both surgical care and joint replacement. These honors were in addition to Providence Saint John’s receiving the Surgical Care Excellence Award and the Joint Replacement Excellence Award for the second year in a row.

In addition to these tremendous honors, Providence Saint John’s was awarded the Pulmonary Care Excellence Award, which places our ministry among the top 10% in the nation for overall pulmonary services – a testament to the dedication and innovations of our caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Healthgrades also bestowed Five-Star Ratings on seven common treatments and procedures, which included: total knee replacement (two years in a row), total hip replacement (five years in a row), treatment of stroke (three years in a row), treatment of COPD, treatment of pneumonia, treatment of bowel obstruction (two years in a row) and treatment of sepsis (five years in a row). This means that Providence Saint John’s delivered statistically better clinical outcomes in these key specialty areas.

All of these achievements reflect the outstanding care our caregivers and physicians provide to our patients each and every day. Thank you all for upholding our tradition of excellence and for providing world-class care as you know, care for, and ease the way of our community.
