Black Hills Surgical Hospital has been ranked Number 6 in the nation out of more than 3,000 hospitals for high quality patient care by Modern Healthcare magazine. Modern Healthcare is the leading weekly magazine in the country on all issues affecting healthcare.
In the two latest issues of Modern Healthcare (Dec. 28 and Jan. 4), Black Hills Surgical Hospital ranked Number 6 in terms of quality out of the top 10 performing hospitals in the United States. These rankings for superior quality patient care are based on numerous factors, including high quality clinical processes, high levels of patient experience and satisfaction, and high efficiency in providing healthcare in a cost effective manner. Black Hills Surgical Hospital is the only South Dakota hospital listed in the rankings. Black Hills Surgical Hospital received the Number 6 ranking based on a government program that collects data measuring hospital quality and patient satisfaction, known as Value Based Purchasing.
The Modern Healthcare ranking follows other recent national recognition received by Black Hills Surgical Hospital, including being named one of the 100 Best Hospitals in America for Spine Surgery and being named in the top ten-percent in the nation for joint replacements by Healthgrades.
