According to HealthGrove, Mountainview Hospital is the top-ranked hospital in Las Vegas, closely followed by Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center. This overall rating is based on eight attributes, including the U.S. News Ranking, the Truven Analytics ranking, patient satisfaction and a selection of death rates.
Despite Mountainview officially beating out Southern Hills in the rankings, patient satisfaction scores are 3 percent higher for Southern Hills. This is just one of the ways that raw rankings can be misleading, and it's important for patients to choose the right hospital for their own needs rather than relying on an overall metric. The rankings provided by U.S. News are done by specialty, and these are useful for identifying particular hospital strengths.
