Franciscan St. Francis Health receives high marks in magazine's annual listings

INDIANAPOLIS – Several clinical programs at Franciscan St. Francis Health’s Indianapolis and Mooresville hospitals are in the limelight for excellence, according to U.S. News & World Report, which today (July 15) released its 2014-15 Best Regional Hospital rankings.

The Indianapolis campus is ranked fifth overall in Indiana and high-performing in gastroenterology and gastroenterology surgery, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery and pulmonology.

The Mooresville campus was ranked 13th overall in the state and its orthopedics program was recognized as high-performing.

Both hospitals ranked well above the state and national averages in patient satisfaction.

“Our physicians, nurses and support staff continually work to improve clinical processes while using their extensive knowledge, experience and skills to ensure better outcomes and superior care for our patients,” said Robert J. Brody, regional president and chief executive officer for Franciscan St. Francis. “We’re pleased their efforts have been recognized.”
Brody also acknowledged the many achievements earned by other clinical service lines, particularly the award-winning cardiovascular program. Franciscan St. Francis was recognized by Consumer Reports (August 2014) as among the best in Indiana for heart bypass surgery.
This year’s Best Regional Hospitals rankings showcase more than 720 of the nation’s 5,000 hospitals.
“The data tell the story – a hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” says U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “A Best Hospital has demonstrated its expertise in treating the most challenging patients.”

This marks the third consecutive year both the Indianapolis and Mooresville hospitals have been singled out as high-performing by the national magazine.
