Harrison Memorial Hospital Awarded on Newsweek’s America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024 List

Harrison Memorial Hospital (HMH) has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website at https://www.newsweek.com/rankings/americas-best-state-hospitals-2024/ame.... HMH received the seventh overall score in Kentucky and was one of only two hospitals in the top seven to also receive the patient satisfaction award. 

Proximity and access are of the utmost importance when choosing between top hospitals. The America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024 ranking was created to identify the top hospitals at the state level. Hospitals from all US states were eligible for the ranking and included in the nationwide survey. Leading hospitals from these states were considered accordingly. Four data sources were used for the evaluation:

  • Nationwide online survey: Over 10,000 medical professionals (doctors, hospital managers and healthcare workers) were asked to recommend the best hospitals (in and out of state) based on their expertise. 
  • Quality Metrics Data: Data from Medicare and Medicare Services available for Mortality, Safety, Readmission, Experience, Timely & Effective Care was considered.
  • Patient Experience: Cleanliness of the hospitals and quietness, communication of the nurses/doctors and staff responsiveness, care transition, medicine communication, and discharge information.
  • PROMS Implementation survey: To account for the increasing importance of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs).

“Harrison Memorial Hospital is pleased to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024 in Kentucky.” said Dr. Stephen Toadvine, HMH Chief Executive Officer. “The achievement is a reflection of our mission and validates the dedication of our board members, medical staff and employees who provide exceptional care to our patients every day.”
