FLINT — McLaren Flint, the 378-bed tertiary hospital serving all of Genesee County, has been recognized as a top 10 Southeast Michigan hospital by U.S. News & World Report in its 2019-20 Best Hospitals ranking.

Now in its 30th year, inclusion in the distinguished ranking demonstrates a healthcare provider’s proficiency in the delivery of its care and the resulting patient experience and outcome.

McLaren Flint was also ranked No. 13 hospital in Michigan.

Hospital rankings are based on objective, care-related data and statistics, while also factoring in the facility’s patient experience score and population-specific health challenges.

“Each and every day, we’re fortunate to have a team of physicians, nurses, and healthcare professionals who commit themselves to high quality care for patients who put their trust in our care,” said Chad Grant, president and CEO of McLaren Flint. “Our ranking and inclusion on this list is a proud honor and result of that dedication.”

The annual list was created as a tool to assist patients and their physicians in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging conditions or common procedures. To create the list, more than 4,500 healthcare providers nationwide were evaluated in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions.

In addition to McLaren Flint’s ranking as a Top Hospital in Southeast Michigan, the organization also ranked ‘High Performing’ in its treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure and performance in knee replacements.
