This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry-ranking provider. Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation, including hospital recommendations from peers, patient experience, and medical key performance indicators (patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment).
“We are incredibly proud of our staff for playing a pivotal role in this accomplishment,” said Keith Page, Anderson Hospital President, and CEO. “Our teamwork has been so visible and important, especially during the past two years of this pandemic. It makes a great difference in the care we provide to our patients because it emphasizes collaboration and promotes an environment that focuses on the quality of care of our patients.”
In addition to ranking in the top 6% of United States hospitals, Newsweek also recognized Anderson Hospital for performing above the average in Infection Prevention measures. In 2021, Anderson Hospital was the only hospital in southwestern Illinois to earn a 5 Star Rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The annual CMS stars program serves as a healthcare guide to hospital quality, comprising more than 50 individual measures that include safety of care, readmissions, patient experience, hospital mortality, and timely and effective care.
