LEE COUNTY, Fla.  — Lee Health adult acute care hospitals were named “America’s Best Hospitals™” for 2021.

Lee Health says the designation rewards hospitals that consistently exhibit comprehensive, quality care across all clinical areas.

We are honored to be recognized among the best in the nation for consistently providing safe, quality care
Larry Antonucci, M.D., MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lee Health

Cape Coral Hospital earned a place in the Top 100 hospitals nationwide. Gulf Coast Medical Center, Health Park Medical Center, and Lee Memorial Hospital earned the Top 250 best hospitals designation placing them in the top five percent.

The top distinctions mean patients at Lee Health hospitals are less likely to experience medical or surgical complications and have the best chances for survival during and after hospitalization.

The list is based entirely on clinical quality outcomes for 32 conditions and procedures. Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance for more than 4,500 hospitals across the nation annually based on Medicare inpatient data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) database.

No hospital can opt-in or opt-out, nor can they pay to be evaluated.
