BSA is one out of over 4,700 medical centers to receive the ranking.

“It is an honor to be recognized as the Best Regional Hospital in our area and ranked as the 18th

BSA officials said the criteria for the recognition is for “spinal fusion surgery, congestive heart failure, colon cancer surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, heart attack, kidney failure and stroke. PSH was named high performer for spinal fusion surgery, hip fracture and knee replacement.”
