BAY AREA, Calif. – Sutter California Pacific Medical Center Van Ness Campus and Sutter Mills-Peninsula Medical Center have been named by Newsweek as America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

Sutter Mills-Peninsula Medical Center is based in Burlingame on the Bay Area Peninsula. It ranked 13th on the list of 40 California Hospitals recognized as the best in the state. Sutter California Pacific Medical Center serves a broader patient population and is a destination for tertiary and quaternary medicine in Northern California. It has four hospitals in San Francisco, as well as additional outpatient facilities in the city. Its Van Ness campus hospital ranked 19th in the state. Both are not-for-profit and part of the integrated Sutter Health network allowing collaboration and coordination of multi-specialty care for patients across northern California.

“This is a testament to the hard work, tremendous skill and unwavering dedication of the teams at both hospitals” says Darian Harris, Sutter Mills-Peninsula Medical Center CEO. “Every member of our care teams, from our amazing front-line caregivers and clinicians to our support services departments and volunteers, play a critical role in our ability to deliver world-class care to the patients and communities we serve – which is why we’re incredibly proud of this team accomplishment.”

“We are delighted to be recognized based on the quality of our care, the experience of our patients and the reputation we have established as a leader in hospital care, both among our peers in medicine and among our patients,” says Hamila Kownacki, Sutter California Pacific Medical Center CEO. “I’m deeply grateful to everyone who helped us achieve this.”

Newsweek selected CPMC, MPMC, and 38 other California hospitals as the Best-In-State Hospitals based on data from four sources:

  • A nationwide online survey of more than 10,000 medical professionals including doctors, hospital managers and healthcare workers.
  • Quality metrics from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services which track hospital mortality rates, safety, readmission rates, experience, and timely and effective care.
  • Patient experience assessments of facility cleanliness, noise level, care-team communication, care transitions and communication to patients about their medicines and discharge from the hospital.
  • Patient reported outcomes after their hospital say, also known as patient reported outcome measures, or PROMS.
