Sunrise and Sunrise Children’s Hospital Ranked #1 in Las Vegas in U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals Metro Area Rankings

April 14, 2011

Las Vegas – April 13, 2011 – Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children’s Hospital have been ranked number one in the Las Vegas metro area in U.S. News & World Report's first-ever Best Hospitals metro area rankings.

These new rankings recognize Sunrise and Sunrise Children’s for high-performance in five medical specialties: heart and heart surgery, cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, kidney disorders and pulmonology. To be ranked a high-performing hospital, a facility had to score in the top 25 percent among its peers in at least one of 16 medical specialties. Criteria included mortality rate, patient safety and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.

“We are proud to be recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the number one hospital in Las Vegas,” said Sylvia Young, President and CEO for Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center and Sunrise Children’s Hospital. “This award reflects the skills and expertise of our staff and physicians who set the standard in high-quality, compassionate care to our patients.”

This is the latest recognition for Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children’s Hospital. In addition to the U.S. News recognition, Sunrise has also been the Las Vegas Consumer Choice award winner for 15 consecutive years and has received the HealthInsight Quality Award acknowledging high performance in the care related to publicly reported quality measures.

U.S. News created Best Hospitals more than 20 years ago to identify facilities exceptionally skilled in handling the most difficult cases.
