Blessing Hospital ranked No. 26 hospital in Illinois by U.S. News & World Report


QUINCY — Blessing Hospital has been recognized as a high performing hospital for the third consecutive year by U.S. News & World Report.

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,750 medical centers nationwide in 17 procedures and conditions for its 2021-22 ratings. Blessing Hospital was recognized as a high performing hospital in six for procedures and conditions for 2021-22.  In addition to three categories for which it received recognition last year — chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure and colon cancer surgery — Blessing also was recognized this year for care that was significantly better than the national average in the categories of stroke, heart attack and kidney failure.

U.S. News & World Report recognizes hospitals receiving high performing ratings across multiple areas of care. With high performing ratings in six categories, Blessing Hospital earned a state ranking of number 26 out of the more than 180 hospitals in Illinois.

“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, in a press release. “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.”

“I am proud of every member of the Blessing team and the care they deliver to patients every day around the clock,” said Maureen Kahn, president and chief executive officer, Blessing Health System and Blessing Hospital, in a press release. “Recognition on the national level is wonderful, but the best health outcomes and exceeding the expectations of patients and families are the goals on which we focus all of our attention.

“The recognition tells us that the Blessing team is doing exceptional work.”
