Leesburg Regional Medical Center was recently ranked No. 3 out of 20 hospitals in the Orlando metropolitan area by U.S. News & World Report, according to a news release. In its 30th year, the annual Best Hospital rankings and ratings changed course this year. U.S. News studied patient-centered care and the difference in patient population at 4,500 medical centers around the nation.
LRMC also received the highest rating of performance in four specialty programs: heart bypass surgery, heart failure treatment, care of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and knee replacement surgery.
“We are honored that our team has earned this sustained recognition for providing excellent, high-quality care to our community,” says Don Henderson, president and CEO of Central Florida Health, the not-for-profit healthcare organization comprising LRMC, The Villages Regional Hospital, and TVRH Rehabilitation Hospital. “When we are acknowledged by a national publication that has very strict criteria for how they grade hospitals, and we stack up with some of the best hospitals in the state, it’s just another validation of our caring experts who are by your side delivering life-saving treatment close to home.”
