Our Lady of the Lake Ranked Top Hospital in Baton Rouge by U.S. News & World Report 07/23/2012
In a report released July 17, 2012, Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center is ranked number four in the state of Louisiana by U.S. News & World Report. The hospital is also listed as high-performing in Orthopedics.
Our Lady of the Lake is ranked number four of 237 hospitals in the state of Louisiana. This year’s Best Hospitals rankings showcase more than 720 of the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals.
The hospital rankings, said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow, are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges. “All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care,” said Comarow. “They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases.”
The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Highlights of the 2012-13 rankings will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2013 guidebook, to go on sale in August.
