Regions Hospital About Us Awards and recognition
Nationally recognized care

For another consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report has named Regions Hospital a 2022-23 Best Regional Hospital. We were also recognized as a High Performing Hospital in nine procedures and conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and heart and kidney failure. Rankings are based on a range of factors such as quality of nursing and discharge rates. We are proud to be named one of the Top 25 Environmental Excellence Award by Practice Greenhealth, their highest honor for hospitals. This award recognizes hospitals for excellence and dedication to sustainability in health care. Practice Greenhealth is the nation’s leading health care sustainability community, empowering its members to improve their environmental stewardship. For the fifth year in a row, HealthPartners has been named to the IBM Watson Health 15 Top Health Systems list. We were #2 in the medium health systems category – the only one in the upper Midwest. This means that we are saving more lives, have fewer medical complications, have shorter wait times in the emergency room and lower costs than other health systems. This recognition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care.
