Healthgrades Ranks Saint Joseph London Among Top 3 in Kentucky for Pulmonary Care

LONDON, Ky. (Jan. 23, 2024) – Saint Joseph London announced today that it ranks #3 in Kentucky for pulmonary care, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This achievement reflects Saint Joseph London’s commitment to delivering the best care possible and distinguishes the organization as one of Kentucky’s leading hospitals for pulmonary care.

“This top 3 ranking for pulmonary care is a testament to our commitment to excellence in patient care,” said John Yanes, president, Saint Joseph London. “It reflects the dedication of our health care professionals who consistently go above and beyond to provide top-notch pulmonary care. At Saint Joseph London, the well-being of our patients is our top priority, and this recognition reinforces our commitment to delivering exceptional health care services.”

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on what matters most – patient outcomes – to determine the top-performing hospitals for specialty care in each of the 32 states assessed. Healthgrades’ 2024 analysis revealed that patients who seek care at a hospital with rankings in their condition or procedure have a better chance of a good outcome than if they were treated at a facility that is not among the top 3 in Kentucky. This widening performance gap highlights the importance of selecting a top-rated program.

“Healthgrades is proud to recognize Saint Joseph London as among the top 3 in Kentucky for pulmonary care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Hospitals with a #3 ranking in their state deliver consistently superior outcomes for the patients in their community. Consumers should feel confident knowing that they have access to top-ranked care for pulmonary care at Saint Joseph London.”
