Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire was recently ranked No. 65 on Newsweek’s annual “Best Hospitals in the United States” list, rising four spots from the previous year.
The Eau Claire hospital is in familiar company: Mayo Clinic in Rochester topped this year’s rankings in both the United States and the world as a whole, while Mayo Clinic Health System hospitals in Jacksonville, Florida, and Phoenix, Arizona, also were ranked in the Top 20.
The rankings placed Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire among the top 2% of hospitals nationwide. It was the second-highest ranked hospital in the state, behind the University of Wisconsin Hospitals in Madison, which was 22nd on the list.
“It is an incredible honor to be recognized as one of the best hospitals in the U.S.,” said Richard Helmers, M.D., regional vice president of Mayo Clinic Health System in Northwest Wisconsin. “This recognition is a testament to the skills, hard work, and dedication of our staff, who work tirelessly every day to bring the most advanced care available to the residents of Northwest Wisconsin.”
According to a media release from Mayo Clinic, “The Newsweek rankings are based on patient satisfaction survey results; hospital recommendations from peers gathered through an international survey of more than 80,000 health care professionals; and key performance metrics, such as patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of care.”
Last summer, Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire was named the No. 4 hospital by U.S. News & World Report.
