For the second year in a row, Advocate Condell Medical Center has been ranked as one of the best hospitals in the Chicago Metro Area in U.S. News & World Report’s 2012-13 Best Hospitals most recent rankings. This year, U.S. News rated Advocate Condell 27th among all Chicagoland hospitals—up from 30th in 2011—and 35th among all hospitals in Illinois.
U.S. News also noted that Condell performed at a high level in urology.
“We are proud to have been identified as one of the best hospitals in Chicagoland for two years in a row,” said Advocate Condell president Ann Errichetti, M.D., M.B.A. “This recognition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bringing the highest quality of care for our patients and the communities we serve.”
The hospital rankings, said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow, are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges. “All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care,” said Comarow. “They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases.”
The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Highlights of the 2012-13 rankings will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2013 guidebook, to go on sale in August.
