Lutheran Named Among America's 50 Best Hospitals™


Lutheran Medical Center has achieved America’s 50 Best Hospitals status, placing it in the top 1 percent of more than 4,500 hospitals in recognition of year-over-year superior clinical performance, as measured by Healthgrades.

There are many agencies that provide information and ratings on hospitals, providing one resource for consumers. Healthgrades is one of the most recognizable and comprehensive resources, and uses publicly available data to assess quality.

“We’re pleased to be recognized for clinical excellence and patient outcomes,” says Grant Wicklund, Lutheran’s President and CEO. “Our staff and physicians are dedicated to providing the highest quality and patient safety, raising our standards and meeting them through innovation and commitment.”

SCL Health has three of America’s 100 Best Hospitals in 2018, more than any other healthcare system in Colorado. In addition to Lutheran, Saint Joseph Hospital is one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals, and Good Samaritan Medical Center is among America’s 100 Best Hospitals.
