(ENGLEWOOD, COLO.)U.S. News & World Report ranked Porter Adventist Hospital second among the top 10 hospitals in the state of Colorado. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 26th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating patients who need an especially high level of care. Additionally, the hospital was rated as high performing" across five specialties, which is more than any other hospital in Colorado. These specialties include: gastroenterology & GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, orthopedics and urology. Porter was also ranked high performing in three procedures/conditions: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure and knee replacement.

Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, which is part of Centura Health, is also included ranking third on the list. Penrose was recognized as high performing across five procedures/conditions: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart bypass surgery, heart failure, hip replacement and knee replacement.

U.S. News and World Report publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age.
