Nazareth Hospital Named “High-Performing Hospital” for Kidney Failure

Nazareth Hospital, part of Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic, has earned the distinction from U.S. News & World Report as a “high-performing hospital” for kidney failure.
 
“We are grateful for the national recognition for providing excellent care to treat kidney failure,” said Michael Magro, DO, president of Nazareth Hospital. “Our team at Nazareth Hospital is committed to excellence across all our service lines and serving our community with quality care.”
 
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 32nd year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.
 
“This year’s expanded report from U.S. News includes new ratings for important procedures and conditions to help each patient pick the right hospital for the type of care they need,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “Hospitals faced incredible challenges this past year, and the best of them have provided great care throughout the pandemic and continue to offer excellent care today.”
 
The U.S. News Best Hospitals’ methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
