San Ramon Regional recognition
San Ramon Regional Medical Center has been named a "high performing hospital" by US News and World Report. The hospital was recognized for its care for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), kidney failure, pneumonia and stroke that is better than the national average, according to the ranking.
"When patients are considering their options for care, these types of recognitions can help them identify hospitals that excel in the type of care they need," said Ann Lucena, the hospital's CEO. "We are so proud of our team for their continued commitment and dedication to making sure our patients in the Tri-Valley area receive the safe, high-quality care they deserve across numerous specialties."
Of the 4,500 hospitals surveyed for the ranking, less than half earned recognition as high performing hospitals, according to an announcement from San Ramon Regional.
