Porter Adventist Hospital Named One of Healthgrades’ 2020 America’s 100 Best Hospitals

(Denver, Colo.) – Centura Health - Porter Adventist Hospital announced it has achieved the Healthgrades 2020 America’s 100 Best Hospitals Award™. The distinction places Porter Adventist Hospital in the top two percent of nearly 4,500 hospitals assessed nationwide for its consistent, year-over-year superior clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.

“It is an honor to be recognized among America’s 100 Best Hospitals for achieving what we strive for every day at Porter: high-quality, compassionate care for our patients,” said Porter Adventist Hospital CEO Todd Folkenberg. “Our team of more than 1,200 caregivers and 1,000 active medical staff is committed to excellence, and this recognition serves to reinforce that effort.”

From 2016 through 2018, patients treated in hospitals achieving the award had, on average, a 25.2 percent lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award, as measured across 19 rated conditions and procedures for which mortality is the outcome.*

“The hospitals that receive the Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospital Award pledge to provide the best clinical outcomes for their patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Hospital quality varies significantly between different organizations, and we commend the recipients of this award as they set the bar for top of the line care.”

Porter Adventist Hospital has also been recognized for other 2020 Healthgrades Quality Achievements, including:

  • One of Healthgrades America's 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement™ for 5 Years in a Row (2016-2020)
  • One of Healthgrades America's 100 Best Hospitals for Prostate Surgeries™ for 2 Years in a Row (2019-2020)

Recipients of the America’s 100 Best Hospitals Award are recognized for overall clinical excellence across a broad spectrum of care. During the 2020 study period (2016 through 2018), these hospitals showed superior performance in clinical outcomes for patients in the Medicare population across at least 21 of 32 most common inpatient conditions and procedures — as measured by objective performance data (risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital complications).
