The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 6th 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.

Milford Regional earned a “High Performing” ratings for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure, 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 those types of care.

“Milford Regional is proud to be among the nation’s select hospitals recognized for high performance,” says Edward J. Kelly, president & CEO of Milford Regional Medical Center. “This is a tribute to everyone at Milford Regional who continually strive to not only meet, but exceed the quality goals set before them.

I want to congratulate them for this achievement knowing that our team at Milford Regional is already looking forward to further enhancements on the programs and services we now have in place.”

For the 2020-21 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 10 procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 37 earned this rating in all 10 Procedures & Conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.

“For more than 30 years, U.S. News & World Report has been helping patients, along with the help of their physicians, identify the Best Hospitals in an array of specialties, procedures and conditions,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “The hospitals that rise to the top of our rankings and ratings have deep medical expertise, and each has built a track record of delivering good outcomes for patients.”
