Paul Hiltz, President/CEO, FACHE

I am proud to announce that NCH has been named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2024, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This achievement
puts NCH in the top 2% of hospitalsvnationwide for overall clinical performance.

Additionally, NCH has been named one of America’s Top 50 Hospitals for Surgical Care, reflecting our commitment to
exceptional patient care.

To determine the top hospitals for 2024, Healthgrades evaluated risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates for more than 30 conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide. Unlike other hospital studies, Healthgrades ratings are based solely on what matters most: patient outcomes.

The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed significant variation in hospital performance, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs. From 2020-2022, if all hospitals, as a group, performed similarly to America’s 100 Best Hospitals, 180,413 lives could have been saved.*

We are honored to once again be recognized in the top 2% of hospitals nationwide for quality outcomes as well as being named a top 50 Hospital for Surgical Care. This achievement is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our healthcare professionals who continually strive for excellence in patient outcomes.
