Now in its 20th year, the magazine's America's Best Hospitals guide is the most extensive hospital ranking to-date. U.S. News & World Report assessed more than 6,000 U.S. hospitals across 16 specialties utilizing an array of rigorous clinical standards - of which only 174 made the list. "We are extremely pleased to be recognized in this manner," said Ed Goldberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Alexius Medical Center. The members of the medical and hospital staff work hard to provide the highest quality care possible for our patients. It is an honor to be recognized for their efforts."

Unlike other hospital rankings, America's Best Hospitals examines entire specialties instead of specific procedures because U.S. News & World Report tries to identify hospitals that excel in a variety of difficult cases across a specialty. Many hospitals in the rankings are referral centers where physicians perform greater numbers of tough procedures. "When the stakes are high, you want the best care you can get for someone close to you," said Avery Comarow, health rankings editor. "These are hospitals that are used to getting the sickest patients."

In addition to the hospitals that appear in one or more specialty rankings in the print magazine, America's Best Hospitals includes an online consumer guide where readers can find information on more than 1,500 hospitals. The report is accessible online at: www.usnews.com/besthospitals.

St. Alexius Medical Center is part of the Alexian Brothers Hospital Network (ABHN), a subsidiary of Alexian Brothers Health System, a diversified Catholic healthcare system based in Arlington Heights, Illinois. ABHN is comprised of four hospitals which serve the two million residents of Chicago's growing northwest suburbs. The 800-bed Alexian Brothers Hospital Network includes two acute care hospitals - Alexian Brothers Medical Center, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, and St. Alexius Medical Center, Hoffman Estates, Illinois, as well as two specialty hospitals - Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital in Hoffman Estates, and the Alexian Rehabilitation located on ABHN's Elk Grove Village campus.
