    San Francisco, Calif., July 21, 2015–Sutter Health's California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) achieved recognition today as being among the best hospitals in California for 2015-16 by U.S. News & World Report. The annual rankings rate top hospitals in the state and in major metropolitan regions, as well as top hospitals according to their performance in 16 adult specialties.

    Of the 430 hospitals reviewed in California, CPMC was recognized among the best, ranking fifth in the San Francisco metro area and 15th in the state. In addition, CPMC:

    • received "high performer" recognitions in three specialties—heart bypass surgery, hip replacement and knee replacement
    • ranked as a "top 50 hospital in the nation" for gynecology
    • ranked in the top 3 percent, at number 137 of the nearly 5,000 U.S. hospitals evaluated to receive a ranking in at least one specialty

    CPMC continually applies high standards for patient experience while employing research, innovation, and creative business and community partnerships to continually improve care delivery. By providing access to necessary services to those in the community who cannot afford health care and by supporting programs and services for those in financial need, CPMC continually seeks ways to integrate health care for all patients.

    The U.S. News & World Report survey ranked hospitals according to reputation, patient mortality, patient safety and other areas, including nurse staffing and technology.

    "A Best Hospital has demonstrated expertise in treating the most challenging patients," said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis at U.S. News. "A hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of."
