Providence SoCal hospitals rated among Best Hospitals, Providence Mission and Providence Saint John’s rank nationally in Orthopedics

All eight eligible Providence hospitals in Los Angeles and Orange counties earned high rankings from U.S. News & World Report, including two that ranked nationally for orthopedics care. 

U.S. News announced its prestigious Best Hospitals rankings and ratings today, bestowing a total of 132 honors on the eight hospitals. Of approximately 415 hospitals across the state, these hospitals were rated among California’s top 33.  

Providence Mission Hospital with campuses in Mission Viejo and Laguna Beach, maintained its rank of No. 35 in the nation for orthopedics and Providence Saint John’s Health Center, Santa Monica, No. 38. 

The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.
