Frisbie Memorial Hospital has been recognized as a "High Performing" hospital for 2020-2021 by U.S. News & World Report.

Frisbie Memorial Hospital earned "High Performing" ratings for COPD in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. "High Performing" is the highest rating U.S. News awards for this type of care.

The annual Procedures and Conditions rating, now in their sixth year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.

"Frisbie Memorial Hospital's commitment to patient safety and quality of care is unwavering, as evidenced by such prestigious recognition," said Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Trevor Eide. "We will continue to remain diligent in our efforts to providing optimal care to COPD patients and to our patient community."

For the 2020-2021 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Less than a third of all hospitals received a high-performing rating.

The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as risk-adjusted outcome rates, volume, quality of nursing, and other care-related indicators. The Procedures & Conditions ratings were produced by U.S. News analysts.
