McLaren Flint was recently named one of Michigan’s top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. McLaren Flint was the only hospital in Genesee County to be included on the comprehensive annual list. McLaren is a 378-bed tertiary health care facility serving all of Genesee County, and surrounding communities. The list also announced three common adult conditions and procedures in which the hospital was “High Performing” – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure and knee replacement.

“We have always been proud and confident in the care our staff provides to our patients during every level of their stay, and our inclusion on the U.S. News & World Report list adds validation to that,” says Chad Grant, president and CEO of McLaren Flint. “Our goal has been – and will always be – to provide each patient with effective treatment in a safe and compassionate environment. The recognition of those efforts is something shared among our entire staff.”

Each year, U.S. News & World Report evaluates nearly 5,000 hospitals in 16 specialties and nine adult procedures and conditions to create a reference tool for patients seeking specialty care. The list is created based upon data collected from multiple professional organizations, placing the heaviest emphasis on patient outcomes.
