Denver, Colo. — HealthONE today announced that four of its hospitals were named among America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This achievement puts these Rose Medical Center, Sky Ridge Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center, and The Medical Center of Aurora in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures.

Sky Ridge Medical Center has been a recipient of Healthgrades America's 250 Best Hospitals' Award for four years in a row. Rose Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center and The Medical Center of Aurora have made the list for the last three years, and Wesley Medical Center has been on the list for the past two years.

“Our relentless focus on quality drives every decision, and ensures our patients have the very best outcomes,” stated Chad Christianson, President and CEO for HealthONE.  “Our care teams at every level deserve accolades for their important role in achieving this esteemed recognition.”

Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation between America’s Best 250 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 250 Best, over 160,000 lives could have been saved.*

“We’re proud to recognize HealthONE among America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023,” said Brad Bowman MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, Rose, Sky Ridge, Swedish and The Medical Center of Aurora consistently deliver better-than-expected outcomes for the patients in their community and is setting a high national standard for clinical excellence.”
