Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital named among “Great Hospitals in America,” highly regarded for its cancer care
Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital has been named one of the “Great Hospitals in America” by Becker’s Hospital Review.
It’s the only hospital in South Carolina to be honored among the 83 facilities on the list.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the ‘Great Hospitals in America,'” said Chief Nursing Officer Tavia Buck. “Our teammates take pride in providing compassionate and expert care to patients, and this award serves as another validation that this team does that as well as the best in the country.”
“These hospitals are renowned for clinical excellence, patient safety, innovation efforts, research and education, patient satisfaction and more,” according to Becker’s. “Top ranking and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, CMS and The Leapfrog Group, have recognized these hospitals for their leadership in the industry and their excellence in several specialties.”
Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital is listed alongside the most prestigious hospitals in the country, including Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Mayo Clinic and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Becker’s Hospital Review describes Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital by saying, “The Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital comprises numerous Centers of Excellence, including neuro-spine, stroke and orthopedics, as well as the Roper St. Francis Cancer Center. The 190-bed facility also provides a distinguished Magnet-certified nursing program. In 2023, the hospital was recognized by Newsweek as one of the World’s Best Hospitals.”
The news came as Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital also was recognized as one of America’s Best Cancer Hospitals in 2023, according to Newsweek Magazine & Statista.
The America’s Best Cancer Hospitals ranking was created to provide patients and family members with a comprehensive resource for informed decision making. The underlying data analysis is based on three data sources:
- Nationwide Online Survey: Healthcare professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about oncology e.g., oncologists, hematologists, and oncology nurses were asked to recommend leading cancer hospitals in the US.
- Hospital Quality Metric: Hospital quality metrics with a focus on indicators relevant to oncology care were considered.
- Results from Patient Surveys: Publicly available data from hospital patient surveys were used to analyze patient experience.
