Denver, CO — Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center (P/SL) has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2023-2024 Best Hospitals. The rankings assist patients and their doctors in choosing the right hospital for them. Presbyterian/St. Luke’s ranks as the #1 hospital for cancer care in Colorado and #46 in the nation according to the 2023-2024 Best Hospitals rankings.

“I am extremely proud of P/SL, in partnership with the Colorado Blood Cancer Institute, Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute and our renowned team of oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurses, techs and support staff,” stated Maureen Tarrant, President and CEO. “The most important part of this ranking is that higher numbers suggest better survival odds, fewer complications and more patients treated. Patients deserve to have the best care available and they can be more confident than ever that the best cancer care is available at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions; only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience. P/SL performed especially well in Leukemia, Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma. A hospital's blood cancer score is based on multiple data categories, including patient outcomes, volume, cancer center designation and more. Over 3,136 hospitals were evaluated and eligible hospitals received one of three ratings -- high performing (351 hospitals), average (1,039 hospitals) or below average (436 hospitals). P/SL was among the highest performing, ranking 5/5 in Survival, Readmission Prevention, Patient Experience, Number of Patients served and Nurse Staffing.

“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News
