Good news for residents of Olympia WA - our local Providence St. Peter Hospital was ranked #3 out of all the hospitals in Washington State by US News and World Report. And they ranked High Performing in eight specialties:
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair
- Colon Cancer Surgery
- Heart Bypass Surgery
- Heart Failure
- Hip Replacement
- Knee Replacement
- Lung Cancer Surgery
In this evaluation, US News and World Report looked at 4,667 hospitals around the country. The evaluation was based on four elements: reputation, patient survival, patient safety and care-related factors such as nurse staffing.
From my own perspective and as a resident of Olympia, this doesn't surprise me. When my mom needed medical care, I was truly impressed with the quality of health care. Coming from a larger city, I was a little nervous about a smaller city like Olympia's healthcare options but I'm so happy to have Providence St. Peter Hospital in my neighborhood!
