St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea was named the second best hospital in the state of Michigan according to Newsweek’s 2020 World’s Best Hospitals list, and the 58th best hospital in the United States.
Hospitals are rated based on high-quality patient care, commitment to patient safety, clinical resources, family centeredness and other measures.
“To be recognized among the best hospitals in the nation and in Michigan is an honor,” said Nancy Graebner, president of St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea in a press release.
“This ranking demonstrates the commitment of our physicians, nurses and medical support colleagues to bring hope and healing to Chelsea-area residents. We are blessed to have such an experienced and dedicated group of caregivers devoted to providing world-class medicine, right here in our community,” she said.
Michigan Medicine, the joint venture partner of St. Joe’s Chelsea, was also recognized in Newsweek’s 2020 World’s Best Hospitals list. Michigan Medicine hospitals ranked No.15 in the world, No. 5 in the United States, and No. 1 in Michigan.
The rankings are based on recommendations from medical professionals, patient surveys and key medical performance indicators, including patient safety, readmission rates and staffing levels.
The World’s Best Hospitals 2020 analysis lists leading hospitals in 21 countries, including the U.S., Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Israel, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, India, Thailand, Australia and Brazil.
A new and independent global board of medical experts helped create this year’s list, according to Newsweek. The board, chosen based on national and international expertise, is tasked with the constant development of the quality and scope of the World’s Best Hospitals Project.
Newsweek has reported on advances in medicine and science since its founding in 1933. For the last two years, the group has partnered with Statista Inc. to curate a ranking of the 100 best hospitals in the world.
