U.S. News & World Report Names Cuyuna Regional Medical Center High Performing in Hip Replacement, Fracture
Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in Crosby, Minn., is included in the Best Hospital rankings for 2021-22 by U.S. News & World Report. CRMC achieved the highest rating possible for Hip Replacement and Hip Fracture and is listed as High Performing.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures. U.S. News evaluates how well hospitals perform using data on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators. Hospitals receive one of three ratings—high performing, average or below average—unless they treated an insufficient number of patients to be rated.
CRMC also received 5 stars out of 5 for satisfaction with the hospital overall and willingness to recommend. Scores are based on surveys taken from inpatients after they were discharged inquiring about different aspects of their stay. The scores are not used in the Best Hospitals rankings.
“We are honored and extremely proud to be ranked among the nation’s top ranked hospitals for orthopaedics and patient experience,” said CRMC Interim CEO Amy Hart. “We are committed to continue providing the highest standards of healthcare and quality with a personal level of care.”
“Our patient-centered clinical staff works together seamlessly as a team from diagnosis to surgery, and if needed, to rehabilitation to provide amazing outcomes,” said Erik Severson, M.D., CRMC’s Orthopaedic Medical Director. “Patients benefit from the expertise of our team of sub-specialty fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeons, the latest technologies, proven processes and a positive culture.”
Data used in the 2021-22 Best Hospitals rankings and ratings come from a period predating the COVID-19 pandemic and were not affected by the pandemic’s impact on hospitals. The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies 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.
