Catholic Medical Center (CMC) has been named by U.S. News and World Report to its 2023-2024 Best Hospitals. The rankings assist patients and their doctors in choosing the right hospital for them. CMC ranks second overall in New Hampshire in the 2023-2024 Best Hospitals ranking. 

Additionally, CMC has been named a High Performing hospital in seven procedures and conditions: Heart Bypass Surgery, Heart Failure, Heart Attack, Pneumonia, Prostate Cancer Surgery, Stroke and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). This is the highest distinction a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings.

“This recognition by US News & World Report is a testament of the work our team does every day; offering health, healing and hope to every patient who comes through our doors,” stated CMC President & CEO Alex Walker. “As the highest-ranked hospital in Southern New Hampshire, families know Catholic Medical Center is a high-quality hospital with excellent patient outcomes and we are deeply proud of the services we provide to our community.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions; only 12% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience. 

“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”
