Gottlieb Memorial Hospital Ranked High Performing in Heart Failure by U.S. News & World Report

MAYWOOD, IL – Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, a member of Loyola Medicine, was ranked high performing in heart failure in U.S. News & World Report's 2020-2021 Best Hospitals rankings.

To achieve a high performing specialty ranking, a hospital must be ranked among the top 10 percent in the nation.

For the 2020-21 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 16 specialties and 10 procedures and conditions. In the 16 specialty areas, 134 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized best regional hospitals based on high performing rankings across multiple areas of care.

"We are pleased to have Gottlieb recognized by U.S. News & World Report for the life-saving care we provide patients who experience heart failure. This ranking is a reflection of the quality of our cardiology program and the dedication of our heart specialists at Gottlieb,” said Shawn P. Vincent, president and CEO of Loyola Medicine.

Loyola University Medical Center, also a member of Loyola Medicine, is ranked 4th in the state of Illinois and nationally ranked in five specialty categories: Gastroenterology and GI Surgery (21st in the U.S.), Nephrology (37th), Pulmonology (45th), Cardiology and Heart Surgery (48th), and Neurology and Neurosurgery (50th). Five Loyola specialties that rank as high performing include: Cancer, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Geriatrics, Orthopaedics, and Urology. Loyola is also “high performing” in 11 other specialties, conditions and procedures.

The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
