U.S. News & World Report recently released its 2021 Best Hospitals rankings, naming Renown Regional Medical Center as the No. 1 hospital in Nevada.

The 2021-22 Best Hospitals rankings are drawn from 4,523 facilities, representing nearly all U.S. hospitals providing inpatient care, according to an Oct. 21 press release from Renown.

Hospitals are evaluated across a wide range of conditions and procedures, including 16 medical specialty areas of care. U.S. News & World Report evaluated 58 hospitals in Nevada.

“We constantly strive to be among the best in the nation for quality, safety and patient experience,” Renown CEO Dr. Tony Slonim said in a statement. “This ranking confirms what the Renown Health team has always been dedicated to — providing the best patient care possible. Quality and safety are the responsibility of every employee and physician at Renown, and we are proud that Renown Regional Medical Center has been chosen as the best in the state and among the best in the nation.”

In addition, Renown Regional Medical Center was rated “High Performing,” the highest rating possible, in eight procedures and conditions, ranking in the top 10% nationally, and earning the highest recognition in Nevada for several specialties, including cancer care, cardiology and heart surgery and orthopedics, among other areas.

“We thank the incredible physicians, nurses, employees and volunteers across our organization for their dedication to excellent patient care. We know that our patients and our community who benefit from our care are the true award winners,” Erik Olsen, CEO of Renown Regional Medical Center, said in a statement. “We applaud the Renown team and our Medical Staff as being not only the best in the state, but among the best in the nation.”

It marks the second year in a row Renown Health 
earned a No. 1 honor; in its 2020 rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked both Renown South Meadows Medical Center and Carson Tahoe Health in Carson City as a tie for No. 1 hospital in Nevada.
