Cabell named one of America’s best


Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH), a member of Mountain Health Network, today announced that it is one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2023.

According to new research released by Healthgrades, this achievement puts CHH in the top 2% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures. CHH is the only hospital in West Virginia to be named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals in 2023, and this is the fifth consecutive year the hospital has been among America’s 250 Best Hospitals (2019-2023).

Healthgrades reports that from 2019-21, patients treated in hospitals that achieved the top 100 honor, on average, had a 25.5% lower risk of death than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award, as measured across 31 rated conditions and procedures where mortality is the outcome.
