LOUISVILLE, KY, July 26, 2022 – Baptist Health Louisville was again named #1 in Metro Louisville – and tied for #3 in Kentucky -- in the 2022-23 U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals listings. 

This is the 10th time in 11 years that Baptist Health Louisville has either been #1 or tied for #1 in Metro Louisville.  

Sister hospital Baptist Health Lexington also tied for third in Kentucky. 

Both Baptist Health Louisville and Baptist Health Lexington were “Recognized in the Bluegrass Region” which encompasses both cities. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized best regional hospitals based on high performing rankings across multiple areas of care. 

For the 2022-23 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions. 

“This recognition reflects the commitment of our medical staff, employees and board to evidence-based care and the advancement of medical practice and treatment for the sake of our community and patients,” said Larry Gray, president of Baptist Health Louisville. “I am proud to be associated with their good work and the numerous ways they demonstrate the mission and values of Baptist Health.” 

Baptist Health Louisville notched high performing ratings in 10 areas: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic valve surgery, COPD, colon cancer surgery, diabetes, heart attack, heart bypass surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement, and stroke. 

Fewer than one-third of hospitals nationally received a high performing rating in the selected adult conditions and procedures.  

“The hospitals named to the U.S. News Honor Roll excel across numerous specialties and service lines,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “When patients and their medical professionals are considering their options for care, the rankings are designed to help them identify hospitals that are superior in the kind of care they may need.”  

The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as survival rates, patient experience, and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home.
