Guthrie Hospitals Recognized Nationally for Multiple Treatments

November 23, 2022

The Guthrie Clinic is proud to announce that two of its hospitals have been recognized in the latest U.S. News and World Report Hospital Rankings for 2022-23. 

Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital (RPH) in Sayre, PA was rated as High Performing for treatment of COPD, heart failure, stroke, hip replacement and kidney disease. 

Guthrie Cortland Medical Center (GCMC) in Cortland, NY was rated a High Performer for the treatment of pneumonia. 

U.S. News generates these ranking by evaluating data from nearly 5,000 hospitals to help patients decide where to receive care. To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients. 

“We are pleased to see Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital recognized by U.S. News & World Report for the care that we give to our patients,” said Dr. Lisa Esolen, EVP, Chief Quality Officer, The Guthrie Clinic. “It’s our mission to honor the patients who entrust their health to us, to build on these achievements, and to deepen our focus on innovative quality care throughout the Guthrie system.” 

Scores in the various areas of care are based on data from multiple categories, including patient outcome or survival, volume of procedures, discharging patients to home, staffing and more. 
Hospitals that earned a high performing rating were significantly better than the national average.
